The list of key workers are now identified below, as outlined in detail on our website. However it is stressed that:
If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
The list of key workers are:
Health & Social Care, Education and Childcare, Key Public services, Local and National Government, Public Safety and National Security, Transport, Utilities, Communication and financial services.
I must stress that schools are being asked to stay open for those children who absolutely need to attend because they cannot be safely cared for at home; at a time when schools are being closed as a measure to reduce social contact and prevent the spread of this disease.
I am mindful that the staff at this present time, and in the future, will be risking their own health to maintain basic provision for specific children.
I thank you for your support
Mrs K. Sansom
