Just to make you aware of the latest guidance from the Local Authority on responsibilities of key workers:
- If at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
- Keyworkers must only send children to school/early years provider when they are actually on rota working for the employer, not at other times.
- Keyworkers should not send them to school/early years provider if their partner, or similar, is able to look after them.
- There is an expectation that if the keyworkers are working from home the default should be to keep children there, rather than to send them to school/early years providers. However, this may depend on the employee’s directive from their employer relating to age/issues of children.
In line with Government advice, staffing in school has been reduced to the safest minimum possible.
