Update from the Executive Headteacher 1/11/20
Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term. We are very much looking forward to continuing to stay open despite the impending second lockdown. We will continue to be organised into 'bubbles' and we will regularly encourage your children to wash their hands. Pupils will have their own sets of resources and we will clean any shared resources at the end of each session, quarantining anything that will be shared with another bubble for 72 hours.
If your child needs to stay off school due to symptoms or having to self isolate please could they do the home learning activities that we have set. These closely match the objectives we will be covering in class that day so working on these at home will support your child to keep on track with the rest of the class. The activities are located on this website on the 'Parent' tab followed by the 'Home Learning' tab.
I hope you have all had a lovely half term break. Keep safe.

Applying For Free School Meals
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the financial situation for many families has changed and we have seen a steady growth in the number of pupils eligible for free school meals. At Littleham C of E, we were quick to act regarding FSM for our families and provided our existing FSM families with hampers on a weekly basis.

The government recently announced that they will provide vouchers per pupil for families in receipt of free school meals to help with the costs of food over the summer holidays. Many families are unaware that they are entitled to this support so below we outline the various reasons why you might be able to apply for this.

Children qualify for free school meals if you get one of the following benefits:
• Universal Credit and your household income after tax is less than £7,400 per year (not including any benefits you get)
• Child Tax Credit, as long as you are not getting 
• Working Tax Credit and have an annual income of less than £16,190
• income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• Income Support
• Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
• The guarantee part of Pension Credit
• Asylum seeker support
• Children aged between 16 and 18 who are getting Universal Credit in their own name can also get free school meals
It is easy to find out if you qualify, click the link below and complete a simple form.
You will be notified instantly if you are eligible. The process is fairly straight forward, as you just need to provide your name, child’s name, school name and importantly your NATIONAL INSURNACE NUMBER. If you are eligible, please screen shot or send that confirmation to us at admin.littleham.devon.sch.uk and you will then be able to claim these vouchers for the summer holidays and beyond. Of course the free school meals team will also notify us but not as instant as you notifying us.
