Key Worker/Vulnerable Children Childcare Provision

 

Langdale has worked with the Local Authority to help co-ordinate and staff hubs across Cumbria.  Government guidance is that if children can be cared for safely at home, then they should stay at home.  Hub places are strictly for those parents who can’t make other safe arrangements.

 

Parents who are key workers or who identify as key workers in the coming weeks or children identified as vulnerable, will be offered a place for their children at Staveley Primary School. Staveley was identified (by the Local authority) as the appropriate hub school base for our area based on demand within our cluster schools. Transportation to/from Staveley will be discussed with families on an individual basis if/when necessary. 

Please see booking form below.  Please note bookings must be made directly via Langdale School – admin@langdale.cumbria.sch.uk.  Bookings must be received no later than the Wednesday before the week in which childcare is required.  Please note that the hub school (Staveley) is being staffed by staff working in schools throughout the cluster group and all medical/safeguarding information will be shared as this is a statutory requirement.

School Closure

Langdale CE Primary School is now closed. 

 

The government has closed all schools until further notice to slow the spread of the coronavirus. 

 

 How to stay safe 

 

  1. Guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection 
  2. Guidance on social distancing and for vulnerable people 
  3. Stay at home advice 
  4. How to wash your hands - NHS

 

The most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and whenever you return home.

 

 Advice for parents 

 

The government has produced new guidance for parents and carers during the closure of schools. It is available here. The guidance is clear: If it is at all possible for your child to be at home, then they should be. 

 

  • If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, some childcare provision will be available to them.  
  • Parents should not rely on vulnerable groups for childcare – the elderly or those with underlying conditions.  
  • Children and adults should follow social distancing  

 

To find out what we are doing to support with education, please go to our Home Learning page for links to a wide variety of learning. Those families that need support will be contacted regularly by a member of staff. If you need to contact school, please email admin@langdale.cumbria.sch.uk.

 

We will continue to update you whenever we can via email and the website.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
