Emergency Childcare

Emergency Childcare Forms


Following the recent announcement from Boris Johnson, confirming that the country is now in a state of virtual lockdown, and only utterly essential journeys to work should be undertaken, I wanted to communicate with you once again.

I reiterate that we remain open, until further notice, to supervise the children of those of you whose key work makes this essential. We know how important this is. A skeleton staff remain in place to facilitate this.

I must emphasise, once again, that you should only send your child to us from now on if it is absolutely essential.  The Government have said that children should remain at home, and you should only send them if your work is critical to the Coronavirus response and you have no other choice.  

Please keep in touch via if there are any changes you wish to make to your current arrangement with us.  You do not need to get in touch unless your circumstances change. 


Please give us a minimum of 24 hours notice if you need to book your child in.  


We will not be allowing any alternative adults to pick up children from childcare unless it is an emergency situation.  You should be dropping and collecting your child yourself, unless the other adult lives in your household.  This is for the safety of our staff and other pupils.


When dropping your child off, please maintain social distancing of 2m between all families.


The current grids go up until 17th April and further grids will be added in due course.  Email us at or in an emergency, telephone the school office during normal school hours 01284 787353 (please note many staff will be working from home wherever possible, so don’t expect an immediate response).


We will endeavour to stay open for this emergency childcare, however if our staff levels become a safety risk, we may still have to close.  We will do everything we can to ensure we stay open for emergency childcare for however long we are needed.


Thank you all for your support.


Mrs Ratley
