Main News Story

This is short note to thank those schools which are continuing to provide excellent support to critical workers children and vulnerable children over the Easter Holidays. NHS colleagues would like me to pass on their thanks to those schools who have managed to secure provision over the two bank holidays.

You will be aware of the challenges facing vulnerable families in Somerset and the need to secure ongoing support. It is disappointing that the Department for Education have not provided guidance to support vulnerable children with free school meals over the Easter holiday.  ​

Many of you are providing school meals over the Easter holidays. On this basis I'm requesting that you continue to provide free school meals to your vulnerable pupils, including those who aren’t currently attending over the Easter holidays, through the options open to you.

 Please contact  SSE if you need advice and support about this issue on 0300 123 7365 or SSE@somerset.gov.uk
