Dear Colleagues,

In the context of as many schools as possible remaining open, where this is not possible, the local authority expects schools to work together to broker arrangements at an alternative provision for any of your parents/carers requiring childcare. Importantly, the responsibility for your children remains with you and you will need to be clear about the safeguarding arrangements for any children attending other schools.

In order to limit the number of journeys made, it is also an expectation that, wherever possible, the children of school staff will be cared for at the school where the parent/carer works, rather than where the children are on roll.

Please find below the survey questions referred to in yesterday’s daily communication.
