If you are a key worker and have requested child care, please read this letter from the County Council’s children’s services department, Children First.
They are asking parents to consider child care at school as a last resort option, stressing that schools can only provide this care if:
“…everyone uses this provision only when they really need it.
Please consider this as an option of last resort!
If you have other safe options for your child/children then please use them.
The best way for us to help prevent the spread of this infection is for children to be at home when it is safe to do so. This enables social distancing and prevents the spread of infection to you and your family. This will preserve life.
Children who cannot be safely looked after at home, are vulnerable, or need specialist support will be provided for.”
