Information from Durham County Council
Communications regarding Key Workers for schools to consider sharing with parents:
As the situation with coronavirus continues to develop we are asking you to carefully consider whether or not your child needs to be in school.
We appreciate that the central government guidance around what constitutes a key worker is quite broad, however we would like to remind you that the reason schools are remaining open is primarily to ensure that those frontline workers who are key to helping this country get through this situation, can get to work.
Each school will have different levels of demand for these places and may handle this situation differently in order to ensure the welfare of all staff and children. We ask you to respect any restrictions your school may put in place to help them cope during these challenging times.
Finally can we remind you that in line with Public Health England guidance, the best place for your child, wherever possible is at home with you, helping to maintain good social distancing for our wider community.
Schools and parents should refer to the latest information and advice from the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England to get the most up to date guidance as things develop: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public
The Government has published guidance for schools and other educational settings in providing advice for pupils, students, staff and parents about the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The following link will take you to that advice:
