More Updates will follow throughout the day no doubt.
*The government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and has asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.
*It is important to underline that schools remain safe places for children.
*The fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.
*Schools are, therefore, being asked to continue to provide care for a limited number of children – children whose parents are critical to the CoVid19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home.
THE LIST OF KEY WORKERS SHARED WITH YOU (UPDATE 5) STILL STANDS. PLEASE DO NOT REFER TO THE LONGER LIST ISSUED TODAY AS THIS LIST IS FOR KEY WORKERS IN ENGLAND AND IT IS FOR SCHOOLS IN ENGLAND ONLY.
We have so many questions and lots of planning today. We will require proof of eligibility as a Key Worker before places will be offered for children next week.
Things are changing by the minute – please keep a close eye on our App and Website.
