I am writing to let you know that we have applied to run school-based July Provision/July Education Programme in our school. From the Department of Education website:
July Education Programme
The scheme provides funding for an extended school year for children with a severe or profound general learning disability or children with autism. The extended year is more commonly known as July Provision or the July Education Programme. Where school-based provision is not feasible, home-based provision may be granted.
Where an eligible school participates in the programme, an extra month's education is provided to a pupil who meets the scheme's criteria. Where school-based provision is not feasible, 40 hours home-based provision may be grant aided.
I expect that the scheme will run from 8.30am to 1.10pm each week day, 1st to 28th July this year, and that Denise will teach it for us. I also expect that school transport will be provided for this (Please know that I am equally frustrated by the delay on this as you are and have been following up on it.) I will let you know when further details are available. In the meantime, I would be grateful if you would let Denise or me know whether you will be availing of this provision.
