Good Morning Everyone,
I hope you had a restful weekend now that the ‘mad dash to Bethlehem’ is in full swing!
In amongst all of this I am not sure how many of you noticed, but now that SSIF funding is over the government are offering some support to schools who meet particular criteria for DfE School Support Offer for 2018/19.
The names of the eligible schools will be sent to me in January once validated data is available. My plan is to contact those schools and to chat through the offer to see if it is something you want or not. The government are quite clear that this offer is optional; “We’d like to make sure that you’re aware that these are optional offers of support. There is no obligation on the school to accept the support offer. This will be a decision for the school’s governing body”.
Any way enough of all that, please enjoy your week and I am looking forward to seeing you at various schools’ Christmas events before we break up.
My very best wishes to you all
