Whitehill Community Academy will continue to provide care provision for the children of key workers, and those deemed most vulnerable, for the duration of the ‘school closure’ period. This will include care through the weeks of 6th and 13th April, the scheduled Easter break.
It is our intention to provide this care and service for the duration of this very difficult time for everyone.
In the extremely unlikely/emergency event that provision could not take place at Whitehill then we would arrange care at Ash Green or Moorside Community Primary Schools. We would also send our school staff to those settings if our children had to be cared for there and would provide details of the host school’s senior leaders and Designated Safeguarding Leads.
Planning for this emergency has already taken place.
