Pending any further changes; as of today, most of our centre is now closed for 2 weeks. We are operating with very limited staff and remain open to our alternative curriculum students, should their parent/guardian be a key worker or they need extra support.
A few questions have been raised to us, regarding wages. The government announced new funding available on Friday 20th March. All UK business are eligible and HMRC will reimburse 80% of employer wages, up to a cap of £2,500 per month. Please check https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid-19/covid-19-support-for-businesses and view the section “Support for businesses through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme”, for information on when this becomes available.
If there are further imminent changes, we will still be available via our social media pages or by emailing email@example.com.
