Childcare Hub - Coronavirus

We are committed to support our key workers and have been working with Carlisle Schools' Partnership to set up a childcare hub that will be sustainable.


The hub for our school will be based at Robert Ferguson Primary School. Our school will be closed from Friday 27th March and staff will be volunteering at the hub instead.


For a place you can email our school at secretary@newinf.cumbria.sch.uk or the hub directly hub@rferguson.org 


Please see the letter below.

Following the announcement from the PM school will be closed from Friday 20th March until further notice but will be open week commencing 23rd March for the children of key workers. Please see letter above.


The Government has today announced who is considered a key worker. Please use this link to check if this applies to you.
