Key Workers

Dear Parents, 

If you are an identified Key Worker as listed below, please consider the following points before sending your child to school: 

  • Only children with a parent working as a key worker on shift during school hours should consider attending school. In single parent families, the individual parents MUST be a Key Worker 

  • If possible, alternative childcare arrangements should be sought* before deciding to send your child to school. Use school as a last resort in order to limit the number of children and adults congregating together; social distancing cannot be guaranteed in a school setting 

  • If your child is attending, he / she must be wearing full school uniform (and trainers) and bring their Home Learning Pack, Break and Packed Lunch 

  • Schools are being asked to provide Child Care NB teachers WILL NOT be delivering normal teaching and learning

  • Opening times match your child's normal school day (ie Nursery 8.45am - 11.45am, P1-P3 8.45am - 2.00pm, P4-P7 8.45am - 3.00pm)



DO NOT send your child to school if: 

  • He / she is unwell 

  • Any member of your family is unwell 

  • Any member of your family is in the ‘vulnerable’ category 

 *Social distancing and good hygiene are VITAL to preventing the spread of Covid-19.  Your child is significantly safer at home than in any other setting. 

If you require the services of the school, please email me in strictest confidence

with the following information by 4.00pm today so we know which and how many children will be in school each day next week: 

  • Your name 

  • Which Key Worker category you and, if relevant, your partner falls in to 

  • Which day (s) your child will be in school between 23 and 27 March 2020 


Best wishes to all of you and your families.
