Maintain Nursery Funding for Those Staying Safe at Home

England's Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty has called for people to 'Stay at Home' unless absolutely necessary. Some parents have chosen not to send their children to pre-school and nursery in order to reduce social contact.

The County Council has proposed to cut nursery funding for those children not physically in attendance at nurseries next week (week commencing 18th January).

We call on West Sussex County Council to swiftly follow the lead of other local authorities and base headcount numbers on roll rather than attendance. This will encourage parents to keep their children at home during a week that Professor Whitty has warned will be one of the worst of the pandemic.
