Coronavirus (COVID-19) school updates

Childcare hubs

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support during these unpredictable and challenging times.

We remain fully committed to supporting vulnerable children and those whose parents are considered to be key workers.

Support for parents and carers is available.

Key worker childcare hubs online booking system

Key worker parent/carers can now book their children into childcare hubs for the week ahead rather than on a daily basis. The current list of key workers is available.

Childcare Hubs are only for children of key workers who do not have access to any alternative childcare. A key worker whose partner is working from home is considered to have an alternative form of childcare and therefore their children cannot use the Childcare Hubs.

25 to 31 May booking form

The online booking form for next week (25 to 31 May) is now live. The deadline is 12noon on Tuesday 26 May. 

18 to 24 May booking form

The online booking form for this week (18 to 24 May) is now closed. If you miss the booking form deadline, late bookings can be made through [email protected]

Childcare hubs details

  • Opening hours - seven days a week, 7.30am-6pm
  • Bookings are now being made seven days at a time
  • We continue to ask parents to drop off and pick up children
  • Parents/carers are reminded to fully complete this form for the week ahead before dropping off their children at the chosen hub, in order for the appropriate number of staff to be allocated to each hub.
  • Children will automatically receive a place once the booking is made. No confirmation will be issued
  • Proof of employment will be requested and a registration form completed upon arrival at the hubs
  • If the booking form deadline is missed, late bookings can be made through [email protected] 
  • Free school meal pick up locations are available
  • Parents/carers who can care for children at home should not send their children to an education setting. This again will help break the cycle of infection.
