Empower Trust policy is;
· Government policy that all children should remain at home if possible.
· Children of key workers who have both parents/carers who are key workers, or single parents who are on the list should be offered a place.
· Children of key workers who have a partner who is not on the list should not be offered a place unless they can provide clear evidence of why their child cannot be cared for at home.
· Government has placed a requirement on key worker parents to obtain confirmation from their employer that, based on business continuity arrangements, their specific role is necessary for the continuation of this essential public service.
