Please can I ask parents to complete the form below if you meet the requirements stated in the letter issued yesterday (copied below) and will require in-school attendance between 11th January – 29th January. Please can I ask that this is completed by 3pm on Thursday, 7th January to allow us to plan supervision for these weeks where possible.
The children of Key Workers will be able to attend school from 6 January onwards provided the following criteria apply:
• The parent/carer is a Key Worker in category 1, 2, or 3 and any partner/spouse is also a key worker in category 1, 2 or 3.
• There is nobody else who could stay with the child/young person at home – spouse, partner, older sibling, family member etc.
• The child is in ELC, P1-P7 or S1-S2 (pupils in S3-S6 will be expected to learn at home).
In short, the expectation is that families will make every effort to make other arrangements and the children of Key Workers will attend school only where there are no other alternatives.
