Estyn Report 2013

Everyone at Princess Road School tries to ensure that we are doing the best job possible for the childen in our care on a daily basis. But don't just take our word for it, our Estyn Inspection was carried out earlier this year and we're all delighted with the results. You can find the report in its entirety at www.estyn.gov.uk so please have a look for yourselves. We've already begun implementing the recommendations from the report to make Princess Road even better in the years to come.

Flying Start

For those children who receive Flying Start funding, it's worth reminding everyone that you are eligible for 15 sessions over the summer holidays. Some have already used a number of these sessions but there are a few who either haven't started or have only used a couple here and there. As we only have 3 weeks of the summer holidays left now is the time to start utilising these if you have not already done so.

College Courses September 2013

Each year we have parents who start courses at colleges and they may qualify for childcare financial assistance. We predominantly deal with Llandrillo College and I've been informed that Childcare Application Forms are available NOW from the Learner Services Department. If you know you are starting a course in September I'd highly recommend you apply for funding as soon as possible. It's a first-come-first-serve basis and once the budget is gone it's gone! Also, we cannot offer sessions at a reduced rate until we have a confirmation letter from the college - so if your funding is late you'll have to pay full price until it comes through to us. For more information: Contact Coleg Llandrillo, Rhos-on-Sea Campus The Advice & Guidance Centre is located next to Reception in the main foyer. Call 01492 542 338/9 or email: enquiries.llandrillo@gllm.ac.uk

Enjoy the rest of the Summer and we'll see you in September!

Kind Regards,

Everyone at Princess Road School
