Ysgol Clywedog will open its doors from Monday March 23rd to support key workers and vulnerable children from all year groups.

Precise times and activities will follow shortly.

Who are the key workers – and which children are classed as vulnerable?

In his speech, Boris Johnson said schooling would still be available for the children of:

  • health workers

  • police officers

  • supermarket delivery drivers

  • workers looking after the vulnerable and elderly

Key workers are people who work within the public sector in roles that are vital to the infrastructure of the community.

While a full list has not yet been revealed, this could also include:

  • Teachers and nursery nurses

  • Police officers, Community Support Officers and some civilian police staff

  • Prison officers and some other Prison staff

  • Probation Service staff

  • Social workers, educational psychologists, and therapists

  • Local Authority Planners

  • Firefighters

  • Connexions Personal Advisers

  • Some Ministry of Defence personnel

  • Environmental Health Officer

  • Highway Agency Traffic Officers

  • NHS Staff
  • Supermarket delivery drivers

Who are vulnerable children?

“Vulnerable children include those who have a social worker and those with a statement of educational need’’.

In addition, we aim to have catering available to provide meals for those on free school meals as a minimum.
