SCHOOL OPENING FROM SEPTEMBER

On 2nd July 2020, the Department for Education published a document entitled Guidance for full opening: special schools and other specialist settings. The full document is available following this link if you’d like to read the full guidance yourself:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-for-full-opening-special-schools-and-other-specialist-settings/guidance-for-full-opening-special-schools-and-other-specialist-settings

This guidance states that all schools (including special schools) should plan for all children and young people, to return to their education settings full time from the beginning of the autumn term, as the prevalence of coronavirus (COVID-19) has now decreased and the NHS Test and Trace system is up and running.

All parents/carers of students who will be with us in September should have received a letter from the Headteacher outlining our plans for this opening. If not, please send us a message using the form below and we will be in touch.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS

Families that are entitled to free school meals can access the online Edenred service, allowing them to place orders for supermarket gift cards. These are worth £15 a week per child and families receive codes by email to redeem. 

Which supermarkets are included? Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda, Morrison’s, Waitrose and M&S are signed up to the scheme currently and more supermarkets are expected to join – this involves them having the right infrastructure to deliver gift cards. 

How do parents to redeem their code? Once they have received their codes parents can visit the redemption website to redeem their code. Edenred has put an online queuing system in place due to the very high demand on this part of the service.
