Parents and carers of children who receive Free School Meals based on benefit entitlement will get a payment of £7.20 per child for the 3 days schools are closed.  There is no need to apply for this payment, it will be made into your bank account on Thursday 28th September.

Remote learning with teachers will be in place. Children and young people also have access to a wide range of online learning resources and educational games.

We will update parents immediately if the dispute is resolved and plans change.
