KEY WORKER CHILDCARE PROVISION

 

14 hubs will be available across the Vale of Glamorgan, made up of schools that are geographically as close as possible to each other.  With 14 hubs, this will mean that the number of pupils attending will remain relatively low to ensure we able to maintain safe social distancing measures.  All hubs will provide childcare for households where both parents/carers are key workers or for single family households where the parent/carer is a keyworker. Childcare provision for these families will operate from 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week, and will provide breakfast, lunching and an evening snack to all children. 

 

A centrally operated admissions process for parents who are key workers has been introduced and children will be allocated to an appropriate hub.  Booking requests and further details can be accessed on the Vale of Glamorgan website www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/ChildCareHubs .

Applications for provision should be submitted weekly by parents, no later than Friday at 4.00pm for the following week (Monday to Sunday). This is to ensure that appropriate planning and resources can be put in place to accommodate all children.

It remains the case that the hub childcare provision should only be used as a last resort where all other options have been exhausted by parents and carers, and wherever possible, children and young people should remain in the safety of their own homes.  The wellbeing and safety of both staff and pupils is absolutely paramount in all our thinking.

We understand that this is a very challenging and unsettling time for you and your children and wish to assure you that as an authority, we are doing everything possible to support the national effort against the COVID-19 virus.

School Admission Arrangements 2021/2022

The Vale Council is consulting on a proposed change to school admission arrangements for community schools for the academic year 2021/2022 in respect of a change to secondary school catchment areas and a minor amendment to the primary school oversubscription criteria.

 

The proposed changes will ensure a more even distribution of school places to meet future demand for pupils within a defined catchment area requiring a school place. The amendment will prioritise those living closest to a primary school where the number of applications from within catchment area exceeds the number of places available that will support attendance at a child's local school.

 

More information on the proposal can be found via the link below.
