Release date: 19 June 2020
We welcome the announcement of financial support for our schools who have been working so hard to support children during this time. We, and our school leaders, are particularly concerned that this generation's children aren't disadvantaged by the impact of COVID-19 and hope this money will go some way to helping with that.
We will look at the detail of the announcement and work with our schools as they work out how best to use the additional funding to make sure children get the support they need.
Teachers and staff at our schools in West Sussex have worked tirelessly to support children and we know children, parents and carers have really valued their hard work. We would like to thank everyone working in our schools.
