Key Workers

We are still awaiting confirmation from the Government as to exactly who is classed as a key worker but we have already started collating details from our parents who think they may fit into this category.

Please refer to GOV.UK for a full list of key workers once they have been made available.

Government Closure of Schools

The Government are requesting that schools close to all students from Friday 20 March 2020 but remain open to those whose parents are classed as key workers and to those students who are considered ‘vulnerable’.

We currently have no definitive list from Government as to who is classed as a key worker but we will update you with this as soon as possible.
