Key Workers - How To Let Us Know Your Child is Coming to School

Dear Parents

As you are aware, the government has mandated full school closures in England and so the academy will close to all pupils at 3:10 today. The only exception to this is our provision for the key workers who will be central to supporting essential services. If your employment is on this list and you are unable to make provision for your children at home the academy will be open to your children from Monday. This applies only to children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home.

The list of relevant professions is on the document here. Please review it carefully.

If you fall into one of these categories, it is important that you contact the academy as soon as possible so that we can plan our provision from Monday. You will need to complete the key worker form, which can be downloaded from our Letters & Emails Home page, and send it to You will need to let us know if you intend to opt your daughter in to this provision and the days on which she will attend the academy.

Families will be able to opt in or opt out on a weekly basis. Where you have alternative options for childcare, your children should not be in school with others. Please do not leave your children with the elderly or other vulnerable adults. There will be a daily register, with the list of pupil names updated each week. If you have opted in for the week, we will expect you to notify us by 8:30 am if your daughter unable to attend on a particular day (or even sooner if you can). This will enable us to keep your children safe, plan for their day and make sure they have lunch.

Please note that parents will be expected to provide proof of employment, either through the form of work ID cards, payslips or letters of employment.

Teachers and support staff are developing our plans to ensure the kind of high quality provision we hope you would expect from us. At a time in which there is a great deal of anxiety and stress among families, we are doing our best to provide an environment that makes your roles as key workers easier to fulfil and ensures your children are well cared for and given the support they need. We will welcome children in on Monday morning and continue to develop our provision during this period. 

Pupils should arrive at the academy at 8:45 am in full school uniform-it’s important they are dressed for school so that they are not stopped by the police truancy patrols. All pupils will also need to bring their lanyard.

They will be dismissed from school at 2:45 pm. Lunch will of course be provided as usual and pupils will be able to buy snacks at breaktime.

Please do make your daughters aware that as they are on the school site, our usual expectations of behaviour apply.

Thank you for everything that you are doing in order to support our country during this very challenging period. We look forward to welcoming your daughter to the academy on Monday.

With best wishes,

Carrie Senior (Principal)
