ARRANGEMENTS FOR EMERGENCY CHILDCARE PROVISION

The school will be open from Monday the 23rd of March for pupils who require emergency childcare between 08:00 – 17:00. Please see the most recent advice from the Minsiter for Education and Skills highlighting that children should only attend if there are no other childcare options available. Naturally this is in line with the most recent government guidance on social distancing.

Only the pupils of parents that have completed the recent questionnaire issued last Thursday will be permitted to attend. If you are a ‘key worker’ and meet the criteria in the questionnaire (shared last Thursday via text), it is still possible to complete it if necessary.

Parents must contact the Headteacher via e-mail to confirm whether or not their child/ren will attend. Can you kindly complete and return the personal details form (here) and the Emergency childcare arrangements form (here)

LUNCH FOR PUPILS WHO ARE ENTITLED TO FREE SCHOOL MEALS:

If your child is currently eligible for free school meals, it is possible to collect a ‘Grab Bag’ for your child whilst they are away from school.

Please complete th questionnaire before 10:00 Monday the 23rd of March for us to be able to organise a Grab Bag’ for your child: https://bit.ly/ArchebPYD-FSMOrder

 

Key Worker Questionnaire

Following further consultation in response to the Covid-19 emergency , Swansea’s Local Authority in conjunction with Welsh Government has decided that schools are going to be re-purposed to provide emergency childcare for the children of key workers in the first instance.
The definition of key worker at present is those who work for the emergency services “blue light services” e.g. NHS staff/Police/Fire service/Prison workers/social workers/school workers. This service will be available between the hours of 8am and 5pm during Monday to Friday, and located (in the first instance) at your child’s current school.
Therefore, we kindly ask that ONLY parents who are classified as keyworkers respond to the questionnaire:
