Pembrokeshire County Council Parenting Support in Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire Families Support Network

Important Changes to Referrals to Parenting Support in Pembrokeshire

The Pembrokeshire Families Support Network is the NEW single point of access for parenting support in Pembrokeshire. It provides the opportunity for our family support teams, along with local voluntary and community sector groups, to work together to support families and help them thrive.

Some of the support available:

· Family Support Team (formerly Team around the Family and Flying Start)

· Action for Children

· Springboard

· NHS Health Visitors support services

· Inclusion Support Service

· PAVS Community Connector

As professionals, to refer an individual or local family for parenting support from our Early Intervention and Prevention Support Teams, an online referral form (for professional use only) will be available on our dedicated PFSN webpage – see links below. Completed forms received will be actioned at our allocation meetings twice weekly, minimising delay and maximising the efficiency with which we link families to appropriate support.

Our aim is to provide families with the right support at the right time, provide a quick response to those who need help to access specialist support services, and give families the confidence to continue making positive changes independently.

Link to website here – https://www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/Pembrokeshire-Families-Support-Network

There will be a phased launch, beginning with professional referrals only. During Phase 1 of the launch, self -referrals will continue to be available for families though all the existing routes. Phase 2 will include routes for families to self refer, and Phase 3 will cease other referral routes to these services.

We are grateful to you for your ongoing support through this period of change. If you have any enquiries please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I attached the presentation if you wish to use this to disseminate to your teams.

Ysgol Harri Tudur / Henry Tudor School Fundraising Journey

Two Ukrainian learners at Ysgol Harri Tudur/Henry Tudor School starting the 2474 km journey which one of them, Vladyslav Ziuzghin and some of his family, took to reach Pembroke.

20230228-Start of Vlad's Journey

Left to Right: Nick Makin, School Business Manager, Marharyta Radvkan (Year 9), Vladyslav Ziuzghin (Year 11) and Jon Jones, Assistant Headteacher.

We are raising awareness and fundraising of the journey our Ukrainian learners have taken to reach Pembroke. For Vlad this was 2474 km. During the planning of this event the tragic earthquake occurred on the Turkey/Syrian border – we are therefore splitting funds raised between both these sad events.

Thank you to those who have already donated. Please follow this link to the Just Giving page if you would like to donate:

Ysgol Harri Tudur / Henry Tudor School Fundraising Journey

Ysgol Harri Tudur is raising money to support two incredible causes.

We will mark the anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine by travelling the distance and journey that one of our Ukrainian learners and their family have taken to reach Pembroke. A bike and rower will be set up in the School Reception. The journey we will take is as follows; Kiev, Uman, Moldova (UK Embassy), Romania (flight) to London, Pembroke.

The school is also mindful of the terrible plight faced by the peoples of Southern Turkey and Northern Syria following February's devastating Kahramanmaras earthquake. Money raised by this event will also be shared with charities in this remote and troubled environment to save lives and rebuild communities.

We will start the journey on Monday 27th February.

We have set up a Just Giving page and invite our school community to also get involved. Through the Just Giving page and other school media, we will post progress as we reach milestones.


Please book a slot via Reception. Please join in and help us achieve this journey.

Thank you.

Important Local Health Board Information

Re: Temporary Hospital Pathway for Sick Children

Important information from the Health Board relating to the current Temporary Hospital pathway for sick children

There is some concern, especially as we approach the busy winter period and with Strep A circulating, that some people in Pembs and south Ceredigion may not be aware about the temporary hospital pathway for sick children (as opposed to those with minor injuries).

Please remember, currently, children in our area with serious illnesses, such as breathing difficulties, or serious injuries need to be seen at Glangwili Hospital, Carmarthen, or Bronglais Hospital, Aberystwyth, which have a co-located Emergency Department and children’s hospital services. Withybush Hospital can only treat children with minor injuries, such as sprains, cuts or minor burns (full list see https://hduhb.nhs.wales/healthcare/services-and-teams/childrens-services/), or booked outpatient appointments.

Pembrokeshire County Council

School Meals Support

Pupils in Pembrokeshire are to receive £11 credit on their dinner money accounts as part of Pembrokeshire County Council’s cost of living support scheme.

The £11 credit will be given to junior pupils in primary schools* and all secondary school pupils to spend on school meals.

It will be available to use until the end of the 2023 summer term.

The one-off credit will be automatically be added directly to pupils’ dinner money accounts on Monday 12th December.

Parents have the option to opt out, if they wish, by emailing cashless.catering@pembrokeshire.gov.uk

*Excludes junior pupils in receipt of free school meals.

Junior pupils who have free school meals won’t receive the extra £11 on their accounts (as there are no extra items for purchase in junior school canteens) but secondary school pupils who have free school meals will receive the extra £11 on their accounts as they can spend the extra money in the cafeteria.

Information for Parents/Carers

Awareness of Scarlet Fever and Streptococcal Disease

Whilst there is currently a heightened awareness and an increase in cases of Scarlet Fever and Streptococcal disease, we are asking parents to be vigilant for the signs and symptoms. Parents/carers of unwell children should seek medical advice for diagnosis and treatment.

Good hand hygiene and avoidance of spread of respiratory secretions (as per influenza- “catch it, bin it, kill it”) can help to prevent the spread of infection.

Exclusion Period

A Learner with scarlet fever must not attend school for 24 hours after the commencement of appropriate antibiotic treatment.

Signs and symptoms of scarlet fever - this infection mostly affects children aged under 10 years, older children are also susceptible to streptococcal sore throats but may not have the rash of scarlet fever.

Scarlet fever is an infectious disease caused by group A streptococcus (GAS) bacteria. It is highly infectious and can be caught through direct contact with an infected person or through the air via droplets from coughs or sneezes.

The characteristic symptom of scarlet fever is a widespread, fine pink-red rash that feels like sandpaper to touch. Other symptoms include a high temperature, a flushed face and a red, swollen tongue. Treatment is straightforward and usually involves a course of penicillin antibiotics.

Complications of scarlet fever and streptococcal infection

Most cases of scarlet fever cause no complications, especially if the condition is properly treated. However, complications in the early stages of the disease can include ear infection, throat abscess, sinusitis, pneumonia and meningitis.

Very rare complications include rheumatic fever, kidney damage, liver damage, bone infection, blood poisoning and toxic shock syndrome which can be life-threatening.

Invasive disease may occur without a person having had scarlet fever or sore throat first. Early signs of invasive disease include: high fever, severe muscle aches, local muscle tenderness, or redness at the site of a wound. If there are any concerns about invasive disease, then urgent medical advice must be sought.

Estyn Report of Visit

Ysgol Harri Tudur/Henry Tudor School January 2022

The Governing Body and Headteacher of Ysgol Harri Tudur/ Henry Tudor School are delighted to share the outcome of the school's recent monitoring Estyn visit in January. Ysgol Harri Tudur/ Henry Tudor School is very proud of both our staff and our pupils and the achievements that we have made together since the 2018 core inspection. We would also like to thank many of our parents and carers and the wider community for their ongoing support.

Ysgol Harri Tudur is judged to have made sufficient progress in relation to the recommendations following the most recent core inspection. As a result, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education and Training in Wales is removing the school from the list of schools requiring significant improvement.'' ( Estyn 28th Feb 2022)

School Site

Parking and Dropping Off/Picking Up

All drivers are requested to use the designated Drop Off/Pick Up and parking sites whilst on the school site.

Please do not use the One Way road outside school for dropping off or picking up. This road is for designated vehicles only including our school buses. Please follow the instructions on the No Entry signs and use the correct spaces.

Please do not park in the Bus Lanes; these are for buses only. Parking in them is causing traffic disruption and is a potential risk to pupils and staff alike.

And please do not park on the pavements; this creates risk to all, but in particular makes access very difficult for our pupils who need to use mobility assistance and those pupils who have visibility impairment.

Drivers are requested to respect local housing estates and avoid temporarily parking in residential areas.
