Currently school is providing critical childcare to children of key workers and vulnerable pupils.
Free School Meals Information:
From Monday 1st June, we will now be issuing e-vouchers from the Government, instead of preparing packed lunches and food hampers. An email will be sent to you every 3rd Monday with an e-voucher that you can use at a wide variety of supermarkets. These vouchers are for the value of £15 per week per child. We will be sending you three week’s worth of vouchers at one time. You will receive an e-code that needs to be exchanged for an e-gift card at the supermarket of your choice. If you do not have an email, we will print your voucher for you to collect. Please contact school, if you need any help with this.
If your circumstances have changed, and you think your child may now qualify for Free School Meals, you must apply for this. Please use the link here to apply through the Cheshire West and Chester website. https://www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/residents/education-and-learning/school-meals.aspx
Looking after your mental health:
What to do if you need urgent mental health help:
- Please call 0300 303 3972 and dedicated local NHS staff will support you to access the help you need
- The helpline is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is open to people of all ages – including children and young people
- The helpline is now the first port of call for mental health help – it is operated by people in your local area who will know how best to support you. If you call NHS 111 you may have to wait longer for help and will be re-directed to this local service – so call 0300 303 3972
- Please note, A&E and 999 are not the best places to get help for the majority of mental health problems – call 0300 303 3972 to be directed to the best local service to support you
- You should still call 999 or go to A&E if you have an immediate, life-threatening emergency requiring mental or physical health assistance
- For non-urgent help and general wellbeing advice, the CWP website contains information and links to resources to support people with anxiety, low mood, and worries relating to the current Covid-19 pandemic www.cwp.nhs.uk
- For children and young people there is also a dedicated website MyMind.org.uk
Please continue to stay safe and follow NHS guidance https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
