Key Workers

Key-Worker Childcare

Our school has been open throughout the period of ‘lockdown’, including during the half-term and Easter holidays, providing childcare for the children of key workers and for vulnerable children.

A ‘snapshot’ graphic to show the list of key worker jobs can be found here, and there is detailed information here.

If any GPS key-worker families require childcare, please contact the school on 0191 514 0101, or email us at: keyworker@grangetown.sunderland.sch.uk  We would appreciate the following information:

  • Your name & preferred telephone number
  • Your child’s name & age
  • Information on your work circumstances: type of key worker role, shift patterns.
  • An indication of days & times childcare is required.

Childcare for Vulnerable Children

During the coronavirus outbreak, for the purposes of continued attendance at educational settings, vulnerable children and young people are defined as those who:

  • are assessed as being in need under section 17 of the Children Act 1989, including children who have a child in need plan, a child protection plan or who are a looked-after child
  • have an education, health and care (EHC) plan and it is determined, following risk assessment, that their needs can be as safely or more safely met in the educational environment
  • have been assessed as otherwise vulnerable by educational providers or local authorities (including children’s social care services), and who are therefore in need of continued education provision - this might include children on the edge of receiving support from children’s social care services, adopted children, those at risk of becoming NEET (‘not in employment, education or training’), those who are young carers and others at the provider and local authority’s discretion.
