Education Welfare Service

The Education Welfare Service works with schools to ensure the regular school attendance of all pupils.  It works with schools to identify pupils with low attendance and ensures appropriate plans are in place.  EWS offers early intervention and support, utilising a Team Around the Family (TAF) approach when needed.  Where attendance does not improve EWS will consider referring the matter to the court. EWS also helps prevent children becoming missing from education.

EWS also issue licences for children in entertainment and employment and child chaperones.

Free Early Years Education

Do you have a child over the age of 3 years that is not attending School on a part time basis?

All children in Wales are entitled to free, part time, quality Early Years Foundation Phase education provision in an approved early years setting from the beginning of the term after their third birthday and prior to gaining full time entry into school.

Carmarthenshire County Council agrees to provide the funding received from Welsh Government to offer all eligible children a minimum of 10 hours free early years learning in an approved setting.

If your child has not been offered a part time place in School then it’s possible to offer a free place in an approved non maintained setting, which could be a playgroup or day nursery.

In an approved non-maintained setting, funding is for either 2 hours a day over 5 days a week or 2½ hours a day over 4 days a week. It is available for the two terms following your child’s third birthday. Following this you must apply for full time place in School the term of their fourth birthday.

Please refer to the link here for further information and to apply for a school place.
