Resilience Hubs

From Monday 30th March Flintshire County Council will be changing its model for the provision of childcare for key workers and vulnerable learners. The Council will operate a smaller number of strategically located primary, secondary and special school hubs, close to major traffic routes in both urban and rural areas.

You must be able to provide evidence that you meet the essential criteria of being a critical worker whose circumstances require emergency childcare or that your child has significant vulnerabilities which would make emergency childcare necessary.

The message in this national emergency is very clear:

‘Stay Home – Protect the NHS – Save Lives’.

Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be and only where there is no safe alternative should provision be made in schools or other settings.

If you are classed as a critical worker but are able to perform the critical parts of your job effectively when working from home, then you should do so. If one parent is a critical worker but the other parent is not then the other parent should provide safe alternative arrangements at home when possible.

If you feel that you require access to the emergency childcare, please contact us by email at post@elfedhs.co.uk or call us on 01244 550217 between 8am and 10am at least 24 hours before you require emergency childcare so that we can assess your application.

Arrangements for Supporting Students’ Learning at Home

Although the school site will be closed, our teaching staff will continue to provide online learning experiences.  We appreciate that this is not the same as face to face contact, but please be assured that we are doing everything we can to support students’ learning during this difficult and unprecedented time.

Teacher have been asked to set online learning opportunities through ‘Show My Homework’ and Google Classroom; students are familiar with using these online learning platforms both in school and at home.

We ask all students to log into ‘Show My Homework’ each day to access their work.

To further support the online learning experiences set by teachers, we encourage students in years 7 to 9 to read each day, and for students in years 10 and 11 to access GCSE Pod.

On our website, www.elfedhs.co.uk, we have provided the relevant links and help guides to support these online experiences.   Please click on the ‘Show My Homework’ and ‘Elfed Portal’ links on the right hand side on our home page. We also encourage you to follow us on Twitter @ElfedHS.

Further details of our online learning platforms are below:
