Key Worker Application Form

 

We are delighted to be able to play our part in the current situation by remaining open for vulnerable children, and the children of key workers on the frontline of the crisis. 

We will need to follow government guidance on the definitions of 'key workers'.

National Health Service, Armed forces, Teachers and childcare staff, Care home workers, Social workers, Police officers, community support, civilian staff, Prison officer or other probation staff, Firefighters, Local authority planners, Environmental health officers, Highway Agency traffic officers, Supermarket delivery drivers.

The full list is set out here.

Families will be able to opt-in or opt-out on a weekly basis, we will need to see some evidence of your entitlement to this provision and please note that in line with social distancing, where you have any alternative options for childcare, your children should not be in school with others. But 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 8am if they are 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 could key worker families download the attached application form  found below and email the completed form to keyworkersprovision@harrismorden.org.uk.

We will then contact you to confirm your place.

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.

To help further we have relaxed our rules on uniform. Students may choose to wear their uniform, but this is not a requirement.

Students should be on site for 8.30am and the school day will finish at 2pm.

Students will be able to purchase food on site from the dining hall.

We look forward to welcoming children in on Monday morning and continue to develop our provision during this period.
