Coronavirus

Burton Green Primary School is closed to all but those requiring essential child care cover (children of key workers, those with SEN needs and vulnerable children)

The single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives. In response to the Prime Minister’s address to the Nation, we must ask that parents and carers continue to only access the emergency child care cover at the school if you absolutely have toand if there is no one else in your household, who is not a key worker, who can safely look after your child.

It is essential that we minimise the number of people accessing this emergency cover so that we can adhere to strict social distancing requirements, for the health and safety and wellbeing of the children and our staff.

What do I do if I need to access the emergency cover?

Correspondence is currently being undertaken directly with the school. Please inform the school if your requirements change and you no longer need cover for the days you have booked.
