KeyWorker criteria for School

Dear Parent/Carers,


The motivation behind the Government instructions are to reduce the risk of the spread of  infection and the most effective way is to keep your children at home.


Could  we ask parents to confirm with school via email or telephone if you are a front-line worker and require provision for your child. Children who should continue to attend school are either those children of single parents who are identified as key workers, or those children where both parents are keyworkers.


  • Key workers are identified on a case by case basis over the next couple of days
  • Only those with no alternative options are deemed eligible
  • Elderly grandparents, and especially those over 70, should not be a fall-back as this will compromise their social-distancing
