Change to Year 6 Transition Arrangements and Year 5 Taster Days - Following the government's delaying of the easing of Covid restrictions, we are no longer able to go ahead with the Year 6 Induction Day on 6th July or the Year 5 Taster days on 7th and 8th July. This decision has been taken along with Shropshire Council and all other Shropshire Secondary Headteachers. We are frustrated that our Induction plans have had to be suspended, but also understand the reasons behind the decision to delay lifting restrictions, as we should not be mixing school "bubbles". I will be writing to Year 6 parents/carers and children to explain our transition plans: The first day of the Autumn term - Friday 3rd September - will be for Year 7 and Year 11 students only, to support their transition. Lyn Hughes, Assistant Headteacher and Transition Coordinator, will still be making her visits out to schools to meet Year 6s, and we will send out a video about the school for children to watch with their teachers. We will be inviting parents/carers of Year 6 children to meet their child's tutor in July. This will take place in line with a Risk Assessment and safety measures. Bryn Faulkner, our SENCO, will also be inviting in high needs children, school-by-school, for a bespoke transition visit. Many thanks for your patience, and 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.
