For those parents with children under 5.
Liverpool City Council in conjunction with Liverpool Adult Learning Service will be starting a 6 weeks Welcome to Play course starting zoom sessions in May. Please see the information below if you wish to access this new innovative play online course.
How do children learn through play?
We have 20 places on the Welcome to Play course via zoom for parents and carers with caring responsibilities of under-fives beginning on Thursday 13th May for 6 weeks. Sign up and get an 'art picnic' full of creative resources. A wonderful course full of fun and creative ideas for playing together.

This course is free and is only for parents/carers with Liverpool post codes.

The Rapid Response Testing vehicle (RRTV) will be on site at Fazakerley High School from Thursday 4th February – Saturday 6th February from 9.30am – 4pm.

Fazakerley High School
The entrance is off Sherwoods Lane which itself is off Longmoor Lane
For those people leaving the house less regularly for things like essential shopping you can still attend the Rapid Response Testing vehicle but ask that you help us prioritise those that need to leave the house on a regular basis to work.
Anyone with symptoms should NOT attend the above site and needs to book a test at one of our symptom testing sites via https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

Information for parents/carers: Free School Meals –
Given the current economic position and number of increased redundancies, some children may become eligible for FSM after school has closed for the summer. See below for advice on what to do if families become eligible for FSMs during the summer holiday period.
If your circumstances change and you think your child is eligible for free school meals after school has closed for the summer break you can apply for FSMs using the link below
If you are eligible, you will receive a notification confirming this. During school’s summer holiday period, you will be sent vouchers by Liverpool City Council on a fortnightly basis.
The Red Cross have new resources that families may find useful activities to be completed over the summer. Please see links below.
