For Term 3 (16th April 2018 - 25th July 2018) we will be using paper PEPS whilst we explore our PEP platform options. Therefore we will NOT be using our ePEP. We have created some interim PEP documents which can be found via the link below, as well as some additional documentation. 

Work with children and young people with additional needs? We want your views.

We are planning some changes to the way we allocate funding through the High Needs budget to improve the support we provide to families. We would appreciate your comments on our proposals and any other ideas that you may have. Have your say!

Key Stage 1


Reading / Literacy and English



The Letterbox Club is an award-winning programme managed by BookTrust. The aims is to provide enjoyable educational support for looked-after children aged 5-13. Gloucestershire Virtual School run the Letterbox club project for looked after children in years 1, 3, 5 and 7. The parcels are delivered to the Virtual School, and we then distribute them by post to the child’s home address.

Each Letterbox Club parcel arrives in a brightly coloured package so it’s exciting to open
and use. As well as the books, maths activities and stationery, each child receives a letter explaining what’s in their parcel that month. All of the books in the parcels have been carefully selected by the panel at BookTrust.




Oxford Owl is packed with expert advice, top tips and activity ideas so you can help your child with reading and maths.
