Further information about how our Trust and schools are taking necessary precautions since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, can be found in our Trust’s ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) website section’.
If any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility and is unable to provide childcare at home, you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing. This means emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01304 403 103 by 9am the day before. For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday. Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing.
