Health Information - COVID19
Update to parents/carers 1st April 2021 Good morning. I am hoping you have received a copy of our Easter newsletter. It is also on the website. I just wanted to stress a couple of points: • Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if your child develops any symptoms of Covid-19 within two days of the end of term (Friday and Saturday). • LFD Home testing – please continue the routine of twice weekly testing and reporting to NHS Test and Trace. • Please test your child on Sunday evening, 18th April, or Monday morning, 19th April, so that we can isolate any positive cases before the return to school. Free School Meal vouchers have been sent out to families for the two weeks of the holiday, today. We had hoped that face coverings would not be necessary in classrooms after Easter. However, we must await an announcement from the Prime Minister over the Easter period for any decisions regarding safety measures in schools. It has been a wonderful four weeks back together in school. Thank you for your support over this difficult term. Best wishes, Paula Hearle
Pupil Premium Grant
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG), which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to support students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Each school receives an allocation of funding based upon the proportion of students meeting the disadvantaged background criteria as set by the Government. Schools are able to assess and decide what additional provision should be made for the individual children within their responsibility.
There are guidelines for how to allocate the funding issued by the Department for Education, which can be accessed via the link.
Please see the related documents to find out how Ludlow CE School used Pupil Premium in 2019/20, and is utilising Pupil Premium in 2020/21.
