19th March - Key Workers / EHCP

Dear Parent / Carer,

The Government has announced that all schools will close with effect from the end of Friday 20th March in order to further slow the progress of the Coronavirus outbreak. This means that most children will need to stay at home.

Schools will, however, remain partially open for some children:
• Children whose parents are key workers – for example NHS / Police / food delivery / social care
• Children who are allocated a social worker
• Children with Education, Health and Care Plans

Children who do not fall into these groups should remain at home with appropriate care. To protect those who are more vulnerable to the virus, leaving children with older relatives or those with serious underlying health conditions is not advised.

The scientific advice shows that school are safe for this small number of children to continue attending – but asking others to stay away will help slow the spread of the virus.

Transport to and from school for qualifying children and students is another area where plans are not yet finalised. With this in mind, it may be that children and students do not attend their home school, but their closest HUET school. Again, details will be provided as quickly as possible.

To help us plan our provision, we now need parents of children who think that they may qualify for one of the categories for whom school will remain open and wish to continue sending their child to school to use the link below and complete the form IMMEDIATELY. We shall respond with further information as soon as we are able.
