22.04.2020 Free School Meals Update

Good evening

We have now had confirmation from the local authority that free school meals will move away from weekly food parcels, instead the local authority will be providing families with a fortnightly food voucher to the value of £39.00 per child, per fortnight. The voucher will be electronic and you will require an email address.

The local authority have informed us that this scheme will start next week, and as a result food parcels will immediately stop. Llanwern High School will therefore no longer be open on a Tuesday for free school meal collections.

Full details regarding the food voucher scheme will be sent to you shortly by the local authority.

If you have not provided the school with an email address or have changed your email address within the last month, please let us know by 9.00am tomorrow morning. If we do not hear from you we will assume your details are correct.

If you have already been in touch with the school this week regarding your contact details, please don’t worry about contacting us again, your details would have been checked and changed if needed.

Thank you for your continued support.

20.04.2020 Important information for pupils due to take exams this year

As you will most probably be aware, the decision has been made to cancel all exams this summer. This includes GCSE, AS Level and A Level exams. However, please be assured that you will be given a grade for the qualifications you have been studying for. This will also be the case for qualifications that you do not have exams for such as Skills Challenge Certificate (Welsh Bacc) and BTECs which you will not have been able to complete.

Please see the attached letter from Assistant Headteacher, Mr Purkins regarding this.

17.04.2020 Free School Meal arrangements for week commencing 20th April

I hope you are all well and enjoyed the Easter break.

I can confirm the arrangements for free school meal parcels will continue next week (week commencing 20th April). School will be open on TUESDAY 21st APRIL between 10am and midday for collections. We have been informed that the council will be moving to a voucher scheme that aims to be up and running for week commencing the 27th April.

In order to ensure we provide the council with the most accurate contact details, can I please ask the parents/carers of pupils in receipt of free school meals to let me know if they have changed their contact details over the last month e.g. phone number, email and address by Thursday 23rd April. It’s vital that we have the correct details to pass onto the council, we don’t want anyone missing out!

If you are not sure if your details are correct please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me using the following email address and I will check them for you.

School work will again be provided using the google classroom systems, any problems accessing this please let me know.

Again thank you for your continued support and please stay safe.
