Last night the Huddersfield Examiner posted an article on their interpretation of what they have perceived to be the Government’s plans for cutting school funding. Whilst there are plans in place for a new National Funding Formula, the figures quoted in last night’s paper are incorrect. The DfE’s estimates of the potential impact of this new formula for this school are estimated to be a cut of approx. £89,000. These figures are illustrative and not actual.
There will be protection in place, so that no school will see a drop in overall funding of -3% per pupil as a result of the new national Funding Formula.
The School and the Governors are well aware of the financial climate facing the school and this is being managed.
There is a website called termdates.co.uk
This is an unofficial website which is publishing holiday and term dates for schools. Unfortunately, the information given is wrong.
Please click here for the official holidays and contact the school if you have any concerns.

Towards the end of last term our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors went to Beckfoot High School on a full day Anti-Bullying Workshop. The aim of the day was to train students to deal with bullying issues in school, and how to provide support to those affected with bullying.
Students took part in different activities throughout the day to get to know each other and also share ideas on what they have been doing in the different sessions.
Both staff and students thought the day was very useful, they now hope to start projects to get the rest of the school involved in this area of work.
