Childcare Guiding Principles (updated 5 January 2021)

We recognise every year staff manage child care commitments within usual policy and procedures. However, due to the current pandemic circumstances there has been a request for some additional guidance on how to best support staff with this.

We have updated our Childcare Guiding Principles document (8 Jan 2021) to set out the Trust’s approach to supporting those staff with child care needs, whilst balancing the requirement to provide a number of our services over a 24/7 period and to be as flexible and supportive as we can within those limitations. We also recognise that many staff are working from home and this brings different challenges as well.
