There are times when every parent and carer needs a bit of support, but it’s particularly difficult being a parent or carer at present. Knowsley Family Learning Service has a team of experienced parenting support workers who are available to give advice and suggestions to help parents and carers manage their children’s behaviour and anxieties during this difficult time.
If you would like to arrange a telephone call with one of the team of parent support workers, please contact the free phone number 0800 073 0043 and ask for Parenting Support. Your details will then be given to the Early Help Hub and someone will call you back.
God our Father, we pray for those who are suffering, for those who are grieving, for those who are anxious, and for those who are working tirelessly to care for the sick. God our Father, your Son Jesus Christ came into our world to heal us of all division and bring us life in abundance. By the power of your Spirit help us strive together as one family of many nations to help those in greatest need during this crisis. We ask this in the name of Jesus our Risen Lord. Amen.
The primary admissions allocation day will take place on Thursday 16th April. All applicants, whether online or postal, will receive a letter with confirmation of their allocated primary school. All allocation letters were sent out, by 1st class post, on Wednesday 15th April and therefore applicants should receive confirmation of their allocation on Thursday 16th April. Online applicants will also receive an allocation confirmation email on the 16th April, as well as their letter. We urge parents not to call the Admissions Team until they have received their email or letter and/or have been to the website below to see if their query can be answered there. A lot of information and FAQs, for example regarding the appeals process, can be found on the webpage https://www.knowsley.gov.uk/residents/education-and-schools/apply-for-a-school-place/annual-school-admission-procedures-september-2020, which has now been fully updated and expanded in light of the current situation.
You will receive a letter from school in the next week or two regarding starting in our Reception class in September 2020.
We have seen a huge increase in cycling as many families are choosing to do this together as part of their permitted daily exercise. Whilst recognising that people are cycling more, it is essential that they take every necessary step to keep safe. Not only for their own safety but to reduce unnecessary extra strain being put on the NHS.
Knowsley Road Safety team would love you to send any completed sheets to email@example.com or share on Twitter @Knowsley_roads using the #knowsleyroadsafety and #staysafe
We have been notified of scams surrounding Free School Meals that have been circulating on social media. We have not received any reports of scams in Knowsley, but at this current challenging time, we would urge everyone to apply caution. With regards to Free School Meals, as per the Government guidance, we are in the process of arranging a voucher scheme which will not involve transferring money or requesting bank account details. Residents are reminded to not give any personal or financial information to someone you do not know, however plausible they may sound.
Genuine organisations would not telephone you to ask for such information. If you receive a letter, email or phone call that you suspect to be bogus, contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0808 223 1133 for advice. Don’t feel pressured to reveal any information.
