Key Worker Registration

As you will have heard, schools are to remain partially open for specific groups of pupils over the coming weeks.  To help us collate a weekly list of children who will be in school so we can manage appropriate staffing, we ask that you complete this form EACH WEEK if you feel that you fall into a 'key worker' category and you require childcare for the following week.


Please make sure this form is completed by the Thursday prior to the following week you require childcare.
