COVID-19 Childcare Arrangements

Dear Parent/Carer,

Re: Arrangements for priority childcare/education in Robert Ferguson Primary Designated Childcare Hub

Priority childcare for parents who have been identified as key workers, and who cannot make any other arrangements, will be provided at Robert Ferguson Primary School, every week, for the foreseeable future.

We will continue to work with local childcare colleagues to provide a safe and positive atmosphere for the children and to give peace of mind to parents undertaking essential work for us all. Our key principles are to enable and encourage the children to be informed and active participants in protecting themselves and others from the virus through social distancing and hygiene routines. Robert Ferguson Primary School's buildings and grounds are suitably spacious for this purpose.

My thanks, in advance, to all the school staff participating in this childcare hub, and to the wider community for ongoing support and partnership in this unprecedented and difficult situation.

Yours sincerely,

Graham Frost.
