You will be aware that new guidance has been issued about key workers (see link). It is clear that if children can stay at home safely then they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. The government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. We ask that you revisit our questionnaire in light of this. My concern is that we are running on a depleted workforce which is reducing daily and I also need to consider the safety of my team. Please bear this in mind when responding and only request a space if absolutely necessary via the linked survey if you haven't done so already. We need to work together and remember that we are supporting society’s emergency services to function.
