COVID-19: Guidance for Parents on Maintaining Educational Provision

The government has published a list of key workers whose children can still go to school if they cannot be looked after at home. These workers’ jobs are considered “critical” for the response to the pandemic. It stressed that “every child who can be safely cared for at home should be” and asked workers to consult their employers to confirm whether “their specific role is necessary”.
Who are “key workers”?
The full list includes:
• Front-line health workers such as doctors and nurses
• Some teachers and social workers
• Workers in key public services including those essential to the justice system, religious staff, and public service journalists
• Local and national government workers deemed crucial to delivering essential public services
• Workers involved in food production processing, distribution, sale and delivery
• Public safety workers including police, armed forces personnel, firefighters, and prison staff
• Essential air, water, road and rail transport workers
• Utilities, communication and financial services staff, including postal workers, and waste disposal workers


Vulnerable children include children who are supported by social care, those with safeguarding and welfare needs, including child in need plans, on child protection plans, ‘looked after’ children, young carers, disabled children and those with education, health and care (EHC) plans.
