Free Breakfast Club

As you will be aware both our Free Breakfast Club and ‘paid for’ childcare provisions are commencing on Monday 14th September.  As our capacity is limited we would request that you think very carefully whether or not you require this and if an alternative arrangement can be found we would really appreciate it.  Unlike other years we are requesting that parents complete a form to reserve a space, however spaces will be awarded on a first come first served basis.  If we are over subscribed you will be informed if you have not been successful.  Please bear in mind that we are going to have to keep the children in their class PODs in this club, therefore have had to appoint another member of staff to accommodate this.

Childcare Offer for 3 – 4 year olds (30 hours)

Childcare Offer for 3 – 4 year olds (30 hours)

The Childcare Offer, which provides eligible families with up to 30 hours of government funded early education and childcare for 3 and 4 year olds was suspended in April to allow resources to be refocused to support the childcare needs of critical workers and vulnerable children through the Coronavirus Childcare Assistance Scheme (C-CAS).

With schools set to return from September, the Offer will reopen for applications enabling families to start accessing the funded childcare.

Parents who would have been eligible for the Offer in the summer term, but who missed out on a full term because they had not started taking up the Offer before the pandemic, will be able to submit their applications from mid-August.

Applications from parents whose child becomes eligible for the Offer in the autumn term will be considered from the start of September onwards.

Please bear with us as after the Minister’s announcement today, we are now working on updating our Childcare Offer website in preparation for applications.

Further information and updates can been sourced from the following:

Wrexham Food Bank Donations

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Further to our email last week regarding supporting a foodbank charity instead of accepting end of year staff gifts, we are pleased to tell you we have chosen Wrexham Food Bank to receive all donations. I have been in touch with them to organise how best to receive your donations and they are absolutely thrilled that our community is supporting them.

To donate safely, please right click on the link below and then choose ‘open link in new tab’ which takes you directly to the Wrexham Food Bank homepage. Scroll down and choose the donate button under the subheading ‘One-Off Gifts’. This then gives you the option to donate safely online, using either Paypal or a credit or debit card. On both of these options there is a space to write a note and if you add “on behalf of Ysgol Estyn community” here, all donations from us will be recognised and they will send out a grand total of the amount raised and a note of appreciation.

The link to Wrexham Food Bank is as follows:

Donate money

We decided this would be the best way to donate, rather than set up a just giving page, as 100% of all donations then go directly to Wrexham Food Bank.

Again, we would reiterate that there is absolutely no obligation to donate, but if you did wish to on our behalf, instead of gifts, that would be very much appreciated. If you have any problems or are unable to donate in this way, please get in touch and we will help in any way we can.

Many thanks again for all your support in these challenging times,

Mr Jones and Ysgol Estyn Staff
