COVID-19 update 11.05.2020 12noon

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have made a decision to close the online childcare requirements form for the foreseeable future and will only be taking children who have already used the School Hubs to date. The majority of Barrow School Hubs are at full capacity. We will be in touch with families to confirm childcare requirements for next week (wc 18.05.2020).

If you need emergency childcare please email who will forward your email onto the relevant School Hub. Please make your requirements clear in your email.

Kind regards,

Barrow School Hubs’ Headteachers


COVID-19 update 11.05.2020 8am

Dear Parents/Carers,

We anticipate the demand for childcare places will increase following the Prime Minister’s announcement stating people will be returning to work, if they are unable to work from home. The tiered criteria we have put in place will still apply. This can be found on the ‘Barrow School Hubs’ Letter to parents’ which is available on our website:

The online form for childcare requirements for the week commencing 18.05.2020 will not open until 12noon (usually 9am) tomorrow. We will be attending virtual meetings this morning, following the Prime Minister’s statement yesterday, to discuss the impact on our own schools and the School Hubs.

Kind regards,

Barrow School Hubs’ Headteachers
