Critical Worker Families

It is our aim to continue to remain fully open and the Government expectation is that even in local areas where restrictions have been implemented, schools will remain fully open to all. However, they have put guidance in place for exceptional circumstances in which some level of restriction to education maybe required. The guidance states that where necessary, attendance may be limited to just vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. As we move forward over the Autumn/Winter months during these uncertain times, we are making preparations to have in school a list of all critical workers. Please see the link below which gives you information on this. 

ONLY Critical Workers outlined in the guidance below should complete a form.
