Where is our Hub School?
St Bridget's School is closed at the present time and any children of Key workers needing emergency child care must attend the Hub at Fairfield School Cockermouth. Please email Mrs Hemingway on Head@brigham.cumbria.sch.uk or contact the Hub directly - see information below.
Along with eight other schools we are part of Cockermouth Cluster. We are offering a child care hub as from Monday 30th March for families of key workers who have no other child care alternative. As a cluster we are working hard to ensure that childcare can remain in place for those children of key workers throughout the duration of school closures. Please be aware over the coming weeks this may be a diminishing resource. We must reiterate however that provision is ONLY for our front line key workers - it is not free child care. We all have a duty to make sure only those families who urgently need this support have access to it.
The message is and must continue to be CHILDREN ARE SAFER AT HOME.
As you may be already be aware, Fairfield School will act as our cluster hub over the next few weeks.
This will continue until further notice and will be available Monday-Friday 8.30am - 4.30pm, please do not arrive at the school before this time. https://cumbria.gov.uk/coronavirus/serviceupdates.asp

A packed lunch will need to be provided by you unless your child is in receipt of Free School Meals in which case the hub school will provide your child with a packed lunch.
Please ensure your child wears their school sweatshirt and trainers. They will also need to bring a water bottle, coat as well as any medication they may be taking.
Please make sure you have completed an ‘administration of medicines’ form which you can obtain from the hub leader when you arrive.
Please be aware this offer is provided by staff from a combination of schools and it is important to realise that your child may not know any of the staff.
We are very grateful to all the staff volunteers across our cluster of schools who are providing this service; be patient with us - it is an imperfect model to cope with an ever changing crisis.
Please only use this service when you have exhausted all available child care options.
Remember if possible, it is better for your child to be at home.
