Schools to remain open for children of all NHS staff

The Government has provided further clarity on its pledge to ensure that schools remain open for the children of ‘key workers’.

The list includes all NHS workers and applies even if just one parent works in a vital role.

This includes but is not limited to doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics, social workers, care workers, and other frontline health and social care staff including volunteers; the support and specialist staff required to maintain the UK’s health and social care sector and those working as part of the health and social care supply chain, including producers and distributers of medicines and medical and personal protective equipment.

If your child’s school is closed then please contact your local authority, who will seek to redirect you to a local school in your area that your child, or children, can attend.​

For further information, please read the full guidance here. ​

If you are asked for proof of employment, beyond your ID badge, then please ask your manager to download and complete this letter

LTHT nurseries

Our Trust nurseries remain open and there are a number of places available for children of hospital staff supporting the Trust response to the Coronavirus outbreak. These places are for children aged 3 months to 5 years, and can be flexible around your shifts.

Our nurseries are open from 07:00 to 18:00 (Monday to Friday, including bank holidays). The nursery teams are qualified and all of our nurseries have been rated as Good by Ofsted.

If you need support with your childcare please contact the nursery team by email on Leedsth-tr.nurseries@nhs.net  or call Clinton Duckworth on 0113 3070684.

Enquires and bookings will be answered as follows:

  • 07:00- 20:00,  Monday to Friday
  • 14:00 - 16:00, each Saturday & Sunday

To enable us to accommodate your preferred nursery location, we will require some basic information and you will need to complete an application form (this will help us to understand any specific child’s needs, food allergies for example).
