2,3,4! Newsletter - April 2020
01 May
A monthly newsletter for providers of funded early education entitlements.
School Joint Working Survey COVID-19 (To be completed by Wednesday 1st April)
01 Apr
Dear Colleagues In the context of as many schools as possible remaining open, where this is not possible, the local authority expects schools to work together to broker arrangements at an alternative provision for any of your parents/carers requiring childcare. Importantly, the responsibility for your children remains with you and you will need to be clear about the safeguarding arrangements for any children attending other schools. In order to limit the number of journeys made, it is also an expectation that, wherever possible, the children of school staff will be cared for at the school where the parent/carer works, rather than where the children are on roll. Please find below the survey questions referred to in yesterday’s daily communication. Please respond by close of play tomorrow (Wednesday 1 April.) Link to School Joint Working Survey : https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SchoolJointWorkingSurvey-COVID-19 Free School Meals Update DfE has issued updated guidance this morning on free school meals vouchers. We are making enquiries about the operation of this scheme, including whether schools can continue to use alternative voucher providers such as Wonde, and will provide an update in this afternoon’s daily newsletter.
