As part of the support for schools and children during COVID-19, Children in Wales have released a mini guide to support The Price of Pupil Poverty guides for Schools in Wales.
The mini guide is relevant to the current situation and is essentially a reminder for schools in how they can continue to help pupils from low income and disadvantaged families during Covid -19 in line with the main price of pupil poverty guides released by welsh government. You can access the mini guide here.
With current school closure in place and recent announcement of schools reopening, the need for the guides will be even more relevant with higher percentage of children falling into poverty as a result of the pandemic. We encourage schools to consider the mini guides and how they can be applied now and in the future. As part of this, we are asking schools to provide us with information on innovative ways they are working to respond to the current situation to help pupils from disadvantaged and low income families during this time.
