Childcare Provision for Key Workers

Childcare Provision for Key Workers

As advised by our government, we will continue to do all we can to stay open for the children of key workers.

Previously the headteachers of the Westminster South Cluster Schools had grouped together to arrange childcare provision (not education) for children of key workers attending these cluster schools.

This arrangement has now ceased and from Tuesday 2nd June, we will be running a childcare provision only for Burdett-Coutts’ vulnerable pupils and children of critical workers. This will be on our school site from 9am to 3pm, Monday to Friday.

Please note that our school will be closed for staff training on Monday 1st June 2020. Alternative arrangements for childcare will have to be made on this day.

Our childcare provision are for children whose parents are key workers and depends heavily on the capacity of our dedicated school staff. Please do not use a space for your child if you do not truly need it – these spaces are for children of parents whose jobs play a vital part in the country’s approach in dealing with this situation. We are running this scheme to save lives and request that parents only use it if they meet all necessary criteria. 

Dear critical worker parents & carers and parents & carers of vulnerable pupils:

RE: End of year celebration – Tuesday 14th July

As the summer term draws to its end, we would like to give your child the opportunity to say goodbye to our Year 6 pupils.

We will be hosting two special events on Tuesday 14th July.

Therefore, I am writing to request that your child is dressed in their full school uniform on Tuesday 14th July.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Dyer, Mrs Lee and Mrs Camplin

Our prayer for the week:

We are not people of fear:
we are people of courage.
We are not people who protect our own safety:
we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed:
we are people of generosity.

We are your people God,
giving and loving,
wherever we are,
whatever it costs,
for as long as it takes
wherever you call us.
