Faith is a Hub school and will be open from 9.00am until 4.00pm for all Key Worker and vulnerable children. Please bring your child to school on Monday if you wish to use our service where staff will be ready to welcome you.
Around 50 hubs to look after primary age children of key workers in Liverpool will open on Monday 23 March.
It follows the Government’s decision to close schools later today until further notice, as part of the response to coronavirus.
The strategically located school sites are only for primary age pupils whose parents are key workers and have no other safe childcare available to them, and will initially be open from 9am until 4pm.
Parents of primary school children who are eligible are asked to take their child to the nearest site which is convenient for them on Monday, where there will be staff available to receive them.
There will be no provision for secondary school pupils, but secondary schools are identifying vulnerable children and will be proactively contacting those parents directly to see if they need any support.
The city’s five nursery schools - Abercromby Nursery School, Chatham Place Nursery School, East Prescot Road Nursery, Ellergreen Nursery School and Everton Nursery School - are remaining open and will accept children of key workers who have no other available childcare.
Some specials will be open - Palmerston School, Princes Primary School, Hope School, Sandfield Park School, Woolton High School, Redbridge, Milstead, Abbotts Lea and Bank View – and will be in touch with parents regarding their capacity to support children.

Schools are due to close at the end of this week. We have had some communication from the Local Authority outlining the plans to create emergency provision for those children that fall into one of the following categories.
- Parents / Carers that are Key Workers – list will be published at some stage today
- Children with EHCPs
- Children with Social Worker Involvement – Child Protection and Child In Need
At the moment we are unsure of any details relating to this emergency provision however we will keep our families informed as soon as we possibly can.
We will be publishing information about to access provision if you are entitled to free school meals as soon as we can.
If anyone has any concerns or would like to talk, please call school on 0151 233 5092.

Message from Steve Reddy, Director of Children and Young People's Services
Dear children, young people, parents/carers and families,
It is important that we all continue to follow the guidance set out by the Government and DfE and make the necessary changes.
Whilst schools remain open some planned activities will inevitably be cancelled.
Schools may well restrict all but essential visitors on to the site.
We will be speaking to Public Health England to consider the implications for children and staff with significant health needs.
Anyone who has high temperature/fever and/or new persistant cough will be required to self-isolate at home for 14 days along with anyone in their household.
We are very grateful for the continued support of all school staff, children, young people and families as we manage these difficult times.
It is important that we continue to work together and support one another.
Director of Children and Young People’s Services.
