Summer Critical Childcare for Key Workers 

We will continue to offer a critical childcare service for the children of single parents who are key workers or for children with two parents if they are both key workers. We are also supporting children and young people from vulnerable families.

We have already contacted key workers and families who are currently using our service. If you think you meet the criteria for this support, you can find out more and how to apply on the council’s website.

I think this applies to me.

If you believe you or your child may be affected, please stay at home and phone NHS24 on 111 or your local GP – you should call rather than visit your GP in the first instance.

Once you’ve received medical advice and if it requires your child to remain off school, please call the school to advise.
