Template letter: Key worker for the purposes of COVID-19MS Word
During the Coronavirus pandemic, the government needs to maintain essential public services. It needs key workers to be able to continue to work for as long as possible and so the government has asked schools and childcare providers to remain open for as long as possible for the children of those key workers.
The list of key workers and more detailed guidance is available at Guidance - Coronavirus - maintaining educational provision for children of key workers. Schools and childcare providers are asking parents and carers to provide a letter to confirm that they are a key worker and therefore eligible for a place. You can use this letter to confirm a worker's key worker status.
