If you need to book on to our emergency provision for
key workers in critical sectors and vulnerable children
please email email@example.com.
Please can children wear school uniform, bring their home learning books and reading diaries and a bottle of water.
We are committed to supporting children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. Many parents working as key workers in critical sectors will be able to make arrangements to keep their children at home. Schools remain safe places for children, but 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. As a reminder therefore, if it is at all possible for children to be safely cared for at home, then they should be.

A list of those classed as key workers can be found on the government's website. The list of key workers has not changed.
