FUEL VOUCHERS

Parents who have been provided with Fuel Vouchers from Liverpool City Council may find this link useful to find a local store.

Link to the PayPoint website for a store locator:   https://consumer.paypoint.com/

Where shops, who are designated sites, refuse to cash vouchers, families can select option if they have an issue with a retailer or they can visit larger retailers in their area – supermarkets for example.


This year our school will be supporting TWO local Charities:
Radio City’s Mission Christmas and KIND.

However, rather than collecting toys and food items for these charities, we will be asking for cash donations.  We are aiming to raise £1000 that will be used to purchase gifts and food hampers for disadvantaged children in Liverpool, so no child is left to go hungry or without a present on Christmas morning.

You can donate online using this link:  https://www.cashforkidsgive.co.uk/campaign/radio-city—greatest-hits-radio-mission-christmas-fundraising-2021/fundraisers/st hilda’s liverpool /

Thank you.

TALK CHECKLIST TO HELP KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE ONLINE

Follow the TALK checklist to help keep your child safe online (Internet Watch Foundation)

The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) tells us that ‘since the start of the pandemic, the amount of ‘self-generated’ child abuse imagery has increased dramatically. In 2020, the IWF confirmed 68,000 cases of such imagery, a rise of 77% on the year before. It accounts for nearly half (44%) the imagery we took action on last year. In 80% of these cases, the victims were 11- to 13-year-old girls.’

The IWF has created a resource to help parents and carers understand the risks of ‘self-generated child sexual abuse imagery’ using the acronym ‘TALK’.  To find out more, go to: https://talk.iwf.org.uk/
