Summer update

Dear parents/ carers
 
I just wanted to keep you updated on the summer holidays and any provision that the school will be looking to provide. 
 
Firstly, schools will be providing FSM food vouchers over the summer holiday and as soon as we have details about how this will work at Gatehouse we will let you know.
 
The government has advised that schools will not be providing provision for key workers/ vulnerable/ EHCP pupils over the summer holidays. 
 
As a school we are currently looking into the possibility of our usual summer clubs being able to operate over the summer - Premier Sports and Footlights, as part of this we are looking at risk assessments to ensure that all children and adults are safe, as soon as a decision has been made on this you will be informed.
 
Lastly the government has pledged some money towards catch up provision across schools which may be used during the summer holidays, the First Federation Trust is currently reviewing this option and all Heads of School will be informed in due course.
 
I apologise for lots of 'if's' and 'but's' currently, but just wanted you to know that lots of work is currently going on in the background and as soon as decisions are made, we will let you know.
 
Best wishes
 
Mrs Leila Naldrett
