Key Worker and Vulnerable pupil provision
We have organised a provision for the pupils of our parents who are Key Workers and for those that are vulnerable. Key Workers are those that work within the following:
- Health and social care
- Education and childcare
- Emergency Services
- Public safety and national security
- Key national and local government
- Food and other necessary goods
- Utilities and communication
If you are a key worker and you have someone at home that is not within this sector then the children are expected to be at home. Those that are Vulnerable are those with allocated social workers and those with Educational Health Care Plan's. We have contacted our vulnerable families and asked all our families to identify themselves as Key Workers. For those that have asked for a provision we will be open from Monday 23rd March. If you have not spoken to us and feel you fit within this category please do phone the school on our main number to confirm you fit in this category and to ensure a place is reserved for you. Names of pupils need to be booked into this service - you can not just turn up for this service.
Our provision will be at Trinity Primary Phase building from Monday 23rd March in the first instance. We are working closely with the Local Authority to ensure we can maintain a service for these pupils and this may move to more centralised hub over time. We will update those involved in this provision directly and this site if any changes happen.
For the next week in the first instance we will be running our provision at the Primary Site. If you usually have pre school provision or post school provision this will be on as usual. If you would like this service please do call the school to discuss our offer. Our main provision will be following the normal school day, from 0845 to 1515. Pupils should arrive at the Primary Main office from 0830 to 0845. They will be asked to stay in the downstairs hall or playground after they have signed in before a teacher will collect them and take them to a classroom. Pupils will be working on the packs provided by the school and on IT based platforms. They will have a break and lunch will be provided for all of these pupils during this time. We will have teachers and support staff to help pupils complete the work.
Primary pupils will be expected to be picked up as normal from the front office at 15.15. Those of secondary age will be dismissed at this time to go straight home on their own.
