Re: COVID-19 Daily Bulletin – Friday (am)
The Department for Education has published a list of “key workers” (see below) whose children will be prioritised for schooling during general closures because of coronavirus. Schools are being asked to continue to provide care for a number of children but will be closed to the majority from Monday 23rd March.
Frontline health and social care staff such as doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics, as well as support and specialist staff in the health and social care sector. In addition it includes those working in supply chains including producers and distributors of medicines and personal protective equipment.
Nursery, teaching staff and social workers.
Those required to run the justice system, religious staff, as well as those responsible for managing the deceased, and journalists providing public service broadcasting.
Administrative occupations essential to the effective delivery of the Covid-19 response or delivering essential public services, including payment of benefits.
Those involved in the production, processing, distribution, sale and delivery of food.
Police, support staff, Ministry of Defence civilian staff and armed forces personnel, fire and rescue staff, and those responsible for border security, prisons and probation.
Those who will keep air, water, road and rail passenger and freight transport modes operating during the Covid-19 response.
Utilities, communication and financial services
Staff required to keep oil, gas, electricity, water and sewerage operations running. Staff in the civil nuclear, chemical and telecommunications sectors. Those in postal services and those working to provide essential financial services.
We have had a limited response from parents informing us of the need to provide childcare for their children from Monday. It is our duty to support the government’s guidelines on social distancing. Families could have one key worker adult in the household but are still able to provide childcare for their child/ren. This is a decision that you would make as a family knowing your regular working hours. We are here to fulfill our social duty during these unprecedented times.
Please now contact us as a matter of urgency (by text, telephone or email email@example.com ) by the end of the academy day 2.55pm at the latest, so we can plan for Monday’s provision.
I will write to all families again this afternoon. Updates will continue to be sent out via email, through Twitter and via our website. Thanks once again for your incredible support.
