Employability Solutions remains open as a frontline service for those children who are classed as vulnerable or for those children of keyworkers, where parents/carers are unable to safely care for their child within the home.
As an alternative provision we have an important role to play in the COVID-19 response, and are committed to providing continuity of education provision and pastoral care as well as meeting the welfare needs of our students and their families, including providing weekly food parcels and signposting to places of help and support.
Further government guidance around the role of Alternative Provision and vulnerable children and young people can be found here:
On Monday 23rd March 2020, Boris Johnson PM announced a UK lockdown which included new coronavirus restrictions for people in the UK. This included only being allowed to leave your home for the following purposes:
- Shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible.
- One form of exercise a day – for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household.
- Any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.
- Travelling to and from work, but only where this is absolutely necessary and cannot be done from home.
Therefore please observe the guidance and only send your child to us if it is absolutely necessary.
First and foremost, our priorities are protecting the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and all their families and ensuring everyone returns to us safely when we are instructed to reopen. So to anyone reading this, please follow the all of the advice from the NHS. Keep yourself and your families safe and help to slow the spread of infection, by washing your hands, self-isolating when you and your family are asked to and keeping a social distance.

Safeguarding our young people during this difficult time is of paramount important to us, therefore we will continue to do all we can to provide the same level of care and support as always. Our eyes will remain on the child and our love and best wishes is sent to you all as always. Xx
