COVID-19 Parent Occupations

19 March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

The government has announced yesterday that from the end of the day on Friday 20th March 2020, schools will be will be closed to everyone except children of key workers and vulnerable children.

The government’s announcement also included their decision to cancel GCSE and A-Level examinations that students across the country were due to take this summer.
I am very aware of the significance of this announcement and I await news about how the government will ensure that students in Years 11 and 13 receive their appropriate qualifications. As soon as I have further information regarding this, I will share it with you.

As an immediate priority, it is necessary for us to capture information about the fields of employment of our parents / carers in order for us identify ‘key worker’ families so we can make contact regarding educational provision over the coming weeks and months. To this end, I would be grateful if you could complete a very short online survey providing the following information:

  • The name(s) and year group of your child(ren) who attend Childwall Sports and Science Academy
  • The job title and current employer for each adult within the household

The link to the survey is:

I request a response from all parents, not just those who believe they fall into the ‘key worker’ category. Please provide this information by 4.30pm today, Thursday 19th March. Once it has been received, we will make contact by telephone with all parents who fall into the ‘key worker’ category.

Thank you for your support in this matter. I will write to all parents again with further information regarding the school and our expectations for student learning in the weeks ahead.

Yours faithfully,

Ms J E Vincent
