Dear all,

Due to the CoronaVirus outbreak, Mortimer Primary School will close at the end of the school day on Friday for an unspecified time.

From Monday 23rd March, we will be operating a limited service for the children of key workers (we are still waiting for the official list from the government).

These may include: National Health Service, Armed forces, Teachers and childcare staff, Care home workers, Social workers, Police officers, community support, Prison officer or other probation staff,

Firefighters, Local authority planners, Environmental health officers and Highway Agency traffic officers. This also includes children with an EHCP and identified vulnerable pupils.

This is an optional service and will not be a typical school day. Parents who identify as key workers are able to organise their own child care arrangements. The government actively discourage the use of elderly family members to fill this role.

Any children in school will receive care from different staff members across a variety of activities. We can not state which staff members will oversee your child’s care.

As of yet we don’t know if eligible families will need to have one or two key workers to access this provision. Single key worker parents will qualify.

A reduced lunch service will be in operation but all children will be fed.

Once we have an understanding of potential numbers we will be able to share details of a full plan.

Parents will need to have proof of employment within a key worker category to ensure the right children and families are supported.

We will continue to update you and appreciate your patience in these challenging times.
