Essential Childcare Statement

CORONAVIRUS 19 – LATEST UPDATE FROM THE FIRST MINISTER

The First Minister has just reiterated that following the closure of schools, childcare being established in each local authority is emergency provision for frontline keyworkers where there is no-one else in the house to look after your child and no other alternative. East Lothian will be opening a small number of Children’s Hubs but we need to ensure that those parents who really need a place get it. Please help us and don’t apply for a place unless it is absolutely essential. We are required to keep numbers in the hubs to an absolute minimum and will be prioritising Category 1 keyworkers in the first instance.

 

Change to FSM provision

Dear parents/carers

 

We have received updated information regarding free school meals provision. Please ignore my previous correspondence as this is now the new guidance:

Free school meals will be available from Monday 23rd March for all children who are in receipt of free milk or clothing grant. These will be served from the Tranent hub (Sanderson’s Wynd) from 11.30am – 12.30pm

Kind regards
