For some families, coronavirus may lead to unemployment or redundancy which in turn can lead to potential stress and loss of income. The school has ordered vouchers for those students currently in receipt of FSM. Vouchers will be posted out to you over the next week.
If you need to make a new application, the Merton link is below. You will need either a National Insurance Number or a National Asylum Support Service (NASS) number to complete this form.
Children supported by the children’s social care system
During this new phase, students with a social worker (those with a child protection plan or child in need plan, and looked after children) are able to attend school. Social workers will work with parents/carers to assess if their son should be attending school.
Children with education health and care (EHC) plans
Students with an EHCP are also able to attend school. Local authorities and parents/carers will work together to respond flexibly to each individual’s needs.
We will continue to prioritise and to work with parent/carers, local authorities and agencies in order to support those who are most in need at this difficult time. We will be in weekly contact with families, local authorities and agencies.
If you are concerned about a student’s well-being or if you are aware of a family in a very fragile position, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include the following fundamental details:
- Your name and contact details
- The individual or families name, age and address (if known)
- Exact details of the concern, providing as much information as is possible (ideally in bullet point form)
We will endeavour to respond to your e-mail within 48 working hours.
