Provision for the children of key workers

During this time all high schools across Cardiff have been organised into two ‘Hubs’ to provide supervision for the children of key workers. St Illtyd’s has been placed in a hub with the other faith and Welsh medium schools.

Our hub provision is based at the Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf school site located in Bridge Road, Llandaff North, Cardiff CF14 2JL. Parents and carers will have to arrange their own transport to and from this provision.

Applications to access this provision must be made directly to Cardiff Council. Please follow this link to their online form and information page.  Provision for new applicants will start on Tuesday 31st March 2020. Please do not send your child to Glantaf unless your place at this provision has been confirmed by the Council.
