Keyworkers Update 20.3.20

20th March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers

The list of key workers are now identified below, as outlined in detail on our website. However it is stressed that:

  • Parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.  
  • Schools are, therefore, being asked to continue to provide care for a limited number of children - children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. 

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
