Director Update

Dear all,

This is the last Education Noticeboard before half term and I would like to thank you all for your incredible efforts over recent weeks.   I know that you have gone to extra ordinary lengths to keep our early years settings, schools and post 16 provision open, given significant workforce capacity issues, and we do hope that the situation will start to ease given the reduction in COVID cases seen across the borough.  

Plenty of updates in the Noticeboard this week.  Please do check out the video showing the Happy Healthy Active Food Programme that was held at Windmill Primary over Christmas!  Great to see the children actively engaged over the holiday period and really enjoying their time.  Please do contact us if you are able to help us deliver over the Easter holidays.  We are keen to get as many programmes in place as possible!

For those of you who have a break next week – enjoy!

Best wishes


Simon Wellman
Director: Education & Skills

HLC Students win Young Enterprise Award

In 2021, Couture from HLC won a number of awards through the Young Enterprise Company programme including the much-coveted Shropshire Company of the Year, and then went on to win further awards at the Regional West Midlands competition. However due to Covid-19 restrictions they have only just been presented with their haul of trophies. Last week, Gill Eatough, Chief Executive, Paul Roberts, Executive Principal, and Daniel Roycroft, Secondary Headteacher at HLC School presented Couture with their well-deserved certificates and trophies.

Couture are a group of year 7 girls, who have made a number of high quality items including face masks, heat pads, canvas bags, bookmarks, and hair scrunchies, and have designed their own tie dye clothing range which they sold through their online shop. They raked in huge support from their friends, family and peers at school as well as securing influencers on social media, achieving well over a thousand followers this was a first for Young Enterprise, noted one of the judges.

They have secured trophies for:

  • Shropshire Company of the Year, Regional Runner-up Company of the Year
  • Best Sustainability, Best Presentation, Best Business Report.

Well done Couture!

Council helps create more school places in the borough

Following Telford & Wrekin Council’s recommendation to the Regional Schools Commission (RSC), a new primary school in Allscott is due to open in 2023, operated by the Learning Community Trust (LCT).

The new village school at Alllscott Meads is being built by SJ Roberts Construction Ltd in close partnership with Telford and Wrekin Council with works due to commence this Spring.
The school is due to open in September 2023 and will provide 150 primary school places, with plans to also offer nursery provision on site.

Labour Councillor Shirley Reynolds, cabinet member for children, young people and families, said: “The opening of a new primary school in Allscott is an exciting project our Council has driven, as part of our commitment to provide more school places and great learning opportunities closer to home for more pupils in our borough.
“We are delighted that Learning Community Trust, a well-established and successful local education provider, has been chosen, at our recommendation, to operate the newly-built village school at Allscott."  

“We are looking forward to working together with the builder (SJ Roberts) and Learning Community Trust for the opening of this new, modern and spacious primary school in Allscott in September next year.”

The new school will have six classrooms, a sports hall, kitchen, staff room, offices, storage rooms and various other rooms for one-to-one teaching, support and interviews.

There will also be a 1.1-acre sports field, hard-surfaced sports court, 40 bike parking spaces, and 18 parking spaces for staff and visitors.

Dr Gill Eatough, chief executive of the Learning Community Trust, said: “We are honoured and delighted to have been chosen to launch this exciting new school at Allscott, which is at the heart of the major development of the former sugar beet factory site.

“We are passionate about our schools and on providing the very best education where children excel academically, are safe, happy, well cared for and grow up to understand respect and responsibility as young adults in our society.

“The curriculum is the absolute focus in all our schools, and we would design a strong, ambitious, creative, and stimulating curriculum with a focus on the history and geography of the local area, which is fascinating, and would create a sense of belonging in a new community.

“Our vision is for a new village school at the heart of the Allscott community, where the school becomes a focal point for the village and village life.”

She added: “We will be consulting with the community over the coming months – particularly with prospective parents and children - to hear their vision for the new school.

“We will be seeking their input into all of the aspects that are so important such as the name of the school, colour schemes, logos and uniform.

“Our vision is for schools to be at the heart of the community, which means that the community must have access to facilities and outdoor spaces during evening and weekends.

“We see this as critical to engaging with the community which is growing around the Allscott site.”

Mike Sambrook, Managing Director of SJ Roberts Construction Ltd, commented: “We are really excited to create a high quality, modern primary school for the Allscott community and are working closely on this with Telford & Wrekin Council.
“We are aiming to keep to minimum disruption in the area while the building work takes place.”

You can watch on youtube 'Creating more school places in our borough'.

 Learning Community Trust was formed in 2017 and has grown into a family of eight schools, responsible for more than 5,500 children and employing just over 1,000 people, spread across 11 different sites.

They include Hadley Learning Community, Ercall Wood and Charlton secondary school in Telford, plus specialist education centres such as Queensway in Telford, and Severndale in Shrewsbury.

As part of its commitment to invest and create a better borough, Telford & Wrekin Council has announced last year a £31 million investment into borough schools for the next two years, to meet the growing demand for school places, in line with the growth happening in the borough.

The Council has also been expanding its secondary school provision and further expansions are planned at other school sites across the borough in due course.

NNDR Consultation Update

The ESFA ran a consultation over the summer of 2021 regarding the payment of National Non Domestic Rates (NNDR) for maintained schools. This resulted in the following paragraph in the financial year 2022-2023 operational guidance:

“Rates will be paid by the ESFA directly to billing authorities on behalf of all maintained schools and academies from April 2022. As ESFA will be making business rates payments directly to billing authorities, less cash will need to be moved to schools. Schools’ budgets will continue to include the rates funding, even though ESFA will no longer pay over physical cash”

When we calculate the funding formula in the schools block, we include an amount which matches the estimate made by the ESFA. This then gets recouped from the Local Authorities Dedicated Schools Grant and the ESFA makes payment to the LA of the actual amount of the NNDR.

What this means for schools, is that your actual NNDR will be paid directly by the ESFA and they will pick up any variance between their estimate and the actual charge. You will now receive the actual invoice so you can see what the ESFA has paid on your behalf but please do not attempt to make payment of the invoice. For LA maintained schools we will process a journal transfer into your accounts of the NNDR charge and an equal and opposite amount into your de-delegation income to match the charge – so no cost to the school budget.

Any questions please contact Andy Wood on 01952 383746.

SACRE Conference for pupils – 23 March 2022

This half day Spring Term SACRE Conference is taking place on the morning of Wednesday 23 March 2022 via Microsoft Teams from 9am to 12.30pm.

The conference is for pupils in Years, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 and will give participants an insight into the science of climate change and how each of the six main faiths are responding to the challenge.

At the end of morning pupils will have an understanding of:

  • what science says about climate change in the light of COP 26
  • how different faiths describe the moral imperative to act to meet the challenges posed   
  • the difference between needs and wants
  • what actions pupils can take

How will the conference be delivered?

  • The conference will be delivered via Microsoft Teams and is being offered free of charge to participating schools on a first come first served basis
  • The conference is aimed at pupils in Years 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 – schools are asked to ensure their PPG pupils are well represented
  • All participating schools will receive a pre-teach video in advance, together with a glossary of terms which explain:
    • key terminology
    • what we mean by weather and climate
    • the consequences of climate change
    • what we can do to address these concerns
  • The video will last around one hour and all participating schools will need to use the video before the conference to ensure pupils have an understanding of the terminology when they join the event
  • The conference will commence with a key note speaker who will set the context; this be followed by faith workshops on each of the six main faiths, giving their insight into the responsibility for taking care of the planet and each other. 
  • From this information pupils will decide on their pledge to reduce the school’s carbon footprint.  The conference will culminate in their presentations, explaining how they will pledge to take action to reduce carbon usage. We also suggest this could be presented to the school’s governors.

In order to register your interest in participating, please send an email to, stating your school name, key contact, year group and number of pupils by Friday 4 March 2022

Be Aware - Big Classroom

Possible Scam Alert - ‘Big Classroom’

In 2019, schools were alerted to an organisation called ‘the Big Classroom’.  They were emailing schools offering a free trial for their services – but schools that signed up to the free trial were then invoiced for a subscription even when they had never used the service.  One of our schools has recently received an email from them and so the company still appears to be active. 

A variety of first-hand accounts of the way this organisation operates can be found on the uk.trustpilotwebsite.

Register your settings bank details to receive funding to support the 12 to 15 year old vaccination programme

This is an update from the Department for Education.

Information for parents of pupils aged 5 to 17 years old on the vaccination programme

This is an update from the Department for Education.

  • Vaccinations help to increase protection against COVID-19, which is particularly important for those with underlying health conditions. Being vaccinated minimises the need for children and young people to have time off from school or college, and helps them to continue to carry out their hobbies, attend social events and live their lives to the full.

  • We have published some frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the vaccination programme including information on eligibility, accessibility and advice for parents of children at high risk from COVID-19. Please share these FAQs with parents, particularly those with children who are clinically vulnerable.

Guidance on how to book appointments for children aged 12 years and over is available on the NHS website. Further information on the vaccination of high risk children aged 5 to 11 years old is available in the guide for parents of children aged 5 to 11 years published by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA).

Message from the Secretary of State for Education, Nadhim Zahawi

Message to all education, children’s social care and childcare leaders from the Secretary of State for Education, Nadhim Zahawi.

I write to you today to express my sincere gratitude for the work you have done to protect face to face education, and to support our children and young people. Thanks to your hard work and dedication, almost all education and childcare settings are fully open, and children’s social care services in local areas have remained resilient. I am grateful for your continued efforts to ensure attendance levels are as high as possible given the vital importance of regular attendance to education and wider wellbeing.

I recognise that while thankfully COVID-19 rates are falling nationally the situation remains challenging for many settings and your staff. Despite that, you have done your utmost for those in your care, particularly supporting the most vulnerable.

Ultimately, vaccinations are our best defence against COVID-19, so thank you to everyone in HE, FE, schools, and local authorities who has supported the vaccination programme for children and young people so far.

On 9 February, the Prime Minister announced that should the encouraging trends in the epidemiological data continue we expect to remove any remaining restrictions one month earlier than planned. This would be a positive step towards our long-term national strategy for living with COVID-19 as we live with other viruses. I want to do everything I can to ensure that education and childcare settings, and children’s social care services, are able to focus as much as possible on their core business of teaching, learning and care. We will set out in more detail what our plans for living with COVID-19 mean for settings in due course.

I know that the incredible efforts that you continue to go to will help us to keep education and childcare settings, and wider services open. Once again, my minsters and I would like to thank each and every one of you for everything that you do.

The Rt Hon Nadhim Zahawi

Secretary of State for Education

Supermarket Free School Meal Vouchers

Telford & Wrekin Council will be sending out Free School Meal vouchers, for those eligible, by email to all of the parents that we have an email address for on Monday 14 February 2022.   The vouchers are worth £15 per child per week.  The vouchers will cover both February Half-term and the two week Easter Holidays.  So in total vouchers worth £45 per child will be issued.

Our communication to parents include the contact details if they experience any problems with the voucher. In the unlikely event that a parent contacts school with queries regarding the vouchers please direct them to if they have not received the voucher. If the query relates to problems downloading the voucher please refer the parent carer to the voucher provider – they can be contacted on  0800 587 2294 or complete a form online. 

In addition to the holiday vouchers a one-off £70 voucher was issued to income related Free School Meal families who are resident in the Borough in recognition of the rising cost of energy and food.  These vouchers were issued on 7 February 2022.  

There are a small number of families who require assistance or who do not have an email address – these vouchers will be distributed to schools on 15 February.

Many thanks again for your support with the distribution of the vouchers which will help children and families over the holiday period.

Could your school provide holiday clubs for children aged 5-16 to stay healthy and active

Happy Healthy Active Holidays Programme banner

Applications are now open for schools to apply for a grant to run holiday clubs over the Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays until 2024?

The scheme called Happy Healthy Active Holidays is run by Telford & Wrekin Council and has now attracted 22 local organisations that helped put on 427 holiday clubs in the past year.

The programme offers free holiday clubs to for children who receive income-related Free School Meals (FSM) across the borough. Children who previously enrolled in the holiday clubs enjoyed a range of fun activities such as sports, music, and arts and crafts, as well as a free nutritious meal each day.

Following the success of the scheme in 2021, the government confirmed the programme will continue for the next three years, and Telford & Wrekin Council have been allocated an additional £843,000 from the Department of Education to run the scheme during 2022.

The Happy Healthy Active Holidays scheme builds on the work of the Council’s own Holiday Activity and Eat Well programme, which has supported voluntary and community providers to deliver holiday clubs throughout school holidays since 2018. 

Schools that can provide healthy meals and fun activities, such as sports, arts & crafts, nature or cooking, should apply.

Venues or organisations who can provide activities for holiday club providers can register as a ‘Delivery Partner’, to help holiday clubs provide a varied programme where you may not be able to provide a full provision, but can offer your venue or be open to working alongside another local organisation.

This could be your schools chance to help support families during what can be a difficult time.

If you’d like further conversations to explore how your school can take part please contact Annleigh Reynolds ( or Andy Cooke (

Happy Health Active Holidays: Information and applications

To see an example of the wonderful programme that was delivered at Windmill Primary School, please watch the short video:

Pre-exclusion Hotline

The pre-exclusion hotline is working well. It has been used by schools that are considering an exclusion.

A member of the BSAT team has been able to offer immediate intervention by discussing the exclusion in more detail, and offering a preventative solution. This support is available for both the individual child and their school.

One example of this was a school who telephoned the pre-exclusion hotline requesting support.

Contact was requested because a child had got into trouble swearing and telling staff that they were going to kill them. The issue was that this individual had previously been on a fixed term exclusion. The school had noticed that the child had complex needs and had previously utilised alternative provision.

The school felt that the information provided to them by a colleague did not evidence the complex needs and support that was previously provided to the child. As Local Authority (LA) officers, the Behaviour Support Development and Advisory Team (BSATs) were able to check the protocol system to see the extensive support that had previously been provided to the child and they were able to discuss this in more detail with the school. 

A visit was planned which allowed the BSAT team to support the child and discuss the reasons for their behaviour using a restorative approach. An offer of a restorative justice session with the child and the teacher involved enabled the exclusion to be prevented. Following this, the school purchased further support sessions from BSAT. 

In this instance, the ongoing support has allowed the BSAT team to check in weekly with the child, who has remained in the school and is now doing well. This demonstrates that with the right support at the right time can prevent exclusions.

The Pre-exclusion Hotline number is 07816 372459.

Developing Autism awareness across our schools and provisions

Gratitude is expressed to everyone who bought into the new drive for the Autism Education Trust training across Telford & Wrekin schools. There was a huge response and there is now an autism lead professional in almost 80% of schools across the borough.

The next step of the programme of professional development is to deliver training to classroom practitioners plus all additional staff. This will consist of two training inputs: The Good Autism Practice (GAP) is for classroom teachers and Making Sense of Autism (MSA) is for all additional school staff. 

The Autism Standards document was distributed during the LGAP training last term, and is the document that will help you to evaluate your school. Many attendees completed an action plan at the training, and this should continue to support you in your role. The benefit of engaging in additional training will be to further equip your staff in understanding autism and how to not only adapt the curriculum, but to also adapt learning environments to further include young people and be able to understand the perspective and experiences of the young person.  A positive outcome of this training will be an increase in attendance in schools as well as an increase in attainment levels, alongside improved experiences of positive mental health and wellbeing. 

Jo Jenks (SENDCo, Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge CE Primary school) wrote: "In order to develop our knowledge and, more importantly, our understanding of Autism, we recently received the Good Autism Practice and Making Sense of Autism training for all the staff in school.  This training has enabled us as a school to reflect upon our approaches and strategies when working with autistic children.  It has given all staff the knowledge of the key areas of differences, and how these impact learning.  Following the training, we have carefully considered our learning environments and have made simple adaptions so that all the children in our school experience a positive education that supports their wellbeing."

To access GAP and/or MSA training, please make direct contact with Michael Lane via email to Either an EP or LSAT staff member will then be allocated to you. 

The costs of the training packages are:

GAP £300 
MSA £100

GAP is a 3 hour session which can be delivered in one whole or via twilight sessions. 
MSA is 1 hour and can be delivered via twilight or otherwise depending upon your schedule.

The aim is to accept and commit to all the training by July 2022 so please take the time to assess your training needs before you make contact. If you have questions, please liaise with your link EP and/or your LSAT link.  If you have not undergone the initial leadership training with AET and would like to receive the training, you can also make contact using the email address above.

Questions about the grant process can often be answered on the mental health lead website or the National Network can be contacted via

Fully funded Spring Term twilights from the Research Schools Network 

This new offer of two free 90-minute online sessions, will support schools to purposefully identify key development priorities for their setting in the wake of the pandemic. It will give guidance on using evidence to identify potential solutions to challenges schools are facing and provide tools and worked examples of putting new initiatives into practice. 
This offer is most suitable for schools or teachers who haven’t already been on Research School training in the last 18 months and want to find out more about using evidence to support recovery. Schools in Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin can sign up now to attend these online sessions, which will run monthly from January 2022. 

The content explores current challenges, and models how to utilise EEF evidence, before clarifying how school leaders can engage further, with RSN and EEF activity such as a new and fully funded training programme, and wider more sustained training and partnerships. These twilights will include: 

  • Twilight 1 is a 90-minutes remote session – ‘Exploring the challenges’. It has a focus on exploring the challenges of educational recovery, recognising school efforts, whilst signposting our relevant evidence and resources. 

  • Twilight 2 is a 90-minutes remote session – ‘Preparing and planning for recovery’. It has a focus on restating the value of the tiered model as a central lens to explore challenges and evidence-led approaches, with the twilight offering a more sustained exploration into how we ‘ensure curriculum access’ via reading and a stronger awareness of language challenges. 

Available dates are included in this. Multiple people from each school can register but each person is required to complete a registration

Research Schools will each be delivering 4 pairs of the same twilights for participants to access. Participants need to only select one pair offered by one of the Research Schools.
