Devon County Council - Key Worker Information Form

1. Devon County Council - Key Worker Information Form

Dear Parent/Carer

Please will you complete the form below so that we can ascertain whether you are eligible to send your child to school during this unprecedented time. It is important to stress that every child who can stay at home absolutely must.
Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. And every child who can be safely cared for at home should be.

Please, therefore, follow these key principles:

1. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
2. If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them. You will already have been contacted regarding this.
3. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.
4. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.
5. Residential special schools, boarding schools and special settings continue to care for children wherever possible.

You only need to complete this form if you are a Key Worker. Details on who the Government are classing as Key Workers can be found at the bottom of the form.

Please indicate which school your child attends. If you have children at more than one of the schools, please complete a separate return for each child. *
