Request for education provision due to Covid-19 closures

The government announced on 18 March that all schools, early years settings and colleges should close with effect from the end of the school day on Friday 20 March until further notice.

However schools and settings will continue to support children of key workers that are critical to Covid-19 efforts and vulnerable children.

As far as possible, children should be cared for at home following the Government’s decision to close schools and other settings. You should only apply if your normal school or setting cannot offer a place and one of the following applies:

You are a key worker critical to Covid-19 efforts and there is no one else at your home that can safely look after your child. (NB We may ask for employer confirmation that applicants are key workers critical to Covid-19 efforts if this is not clear)

  • Your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan and cannot safely be cared for at home
  • Your child has a social worker
  • We will do our best to accommodate your request, where possible.
