Does your child have a school place for September?
If you don’t already have a place for your child for September, don’t worry, it’s not too late to apply.
Do you know when your child goes back?
This varies from school to school. For the most accurate information, visit the school’s website
Are you prepared?
It’s a busy time getting your child or young person ready to return to school after the summer break.
It can also be quite a costly time too, so here’s some useful information for anyone needing a little extra help:
Uniforms – Unfortunately, we no longer run a School Uniform scheme, however, if you contact your child’s school, they may be able to help. Most schools hold stock of good condition second-hand school uniform items.
School meals – You may be entitled to free school meals if your child attends a local authority-maintained school (not private). Check to see if you are eligible:
