The Department for Education (DfE) is launching a campaign to promote and raise awareness of the benefits that using 30 hours childcare can have for working families. We were delighted to be asked to help make a promotional film at our Nursery.
Claire from Leeds shares her story of how #30hours childcare helped give her back her “independence”

Proposal to increase primary school places within the Alwoodley area
Leeds City Council is consulting on a proposal to expand Allerton Church of England Primary School from a capacity of 420 to 630 pupils by permanently increasing the admission limit in reception from 60 to 90 pupils from September 2018. The consultation period commences on Monday 26 June 2017 and closes on Friday 21 July 2017 at 4pm. During this time we will be having some drop-in sessions at the school for parents, carers and residents to learn more about the proposal and ask any questions they may have. The format of the drop-in sessions is informal, with officers from the Sufficiency and Participation (school place planning), Built Environment and Highways teams in attendance to discuss any queries you may have about the proposals. You may attend any of the drop-in sessions between the start and finish times.
Drop-in session dates and times:
Monday 26 June 5pm-7pm
Monday 3 July 8.30am-9.30am
Thursday 13 July 2.45pm-4pm
To find out more about the proposal and how you can have your say, please pick up a copy of the consultation document from the school office, download it from here or visit the following websites from June 2017
Did you know that every two weeks a parents Values newsletter is added to the school’s website to help keep you informed about the values that we are doing in school? The values come from the “fruits of spirit” in the Bible (Galatians 5:22-23) and also from the Fundamental British Values that schools are required to promote. We hope you enjoy reading these newsletters together as a family and make time to have a family discussion about these to compliment the children’s learning in school.
