News: Key / Vital Worker Update

Following Flintshire County Council direction we will open on Monday 23rd March 2020 for children of families who are A SINGLE PARENT WHO IS A VITAL WORKER OR  WHERE BOTH PARENTS ARE VITAL WORKERS. Flintshire County Council’s guidance is clear. “The expectation is that any child who can safely be cared for at home SHOULD BE and it is in exceptional circumstances that they will need to access this provision.  The main reason for School Closures is ultimately to reduce social contact”.

We ask for your support in responding as quickly as possible.
