  • Farmers urged to prepare for new reforms - Shropshire Business Today
    information from the 2014 Single Payment Claim including relevant data from Environmental Stewardship Schemes Charlotte explained This is manipulated to take account of the plans on the ground for 2015 and works out the Ecological Focus Area EFA requirement and Crop Diversification CD parameters for each crop This will enable us to advise clients on the CD and EFA requirements for the farm and assess any exemptions and the impact of agri environment schemes that are relevant to the land Clients who have used the calculator have been extremely pleased as within an hour they found out whether or not they would have to make any cropping changes and where to make those changes she said For example one dairy farming client with permanent and temporary pasture and around 20 hectares of winter barley was pleased to find out that he didn t have to make any changes even though he was over the threshold for both CD and EFA rules He had 80 hectares of what is classed as eligible arable land but because a lot of his cropping was temporary grass he was exempt from any of the CD or EFA rules If you do find out you have to adhere to the rules the calculator will tell you the maximum area of each crop you can grow so that you are not cropping over your relevant thresholds she added Farmers should also be aware that the 2015 Basic Payment application will have to be made online on a completely new system as the government gateway will be abolished so if they are registered online already they will have to register again Berrys will be holding sessions to help clients complete their online registration once all the details of the new application system are released by the Rural

  • Federation to the fore - Shropshire Business Today
    view go very much against its culture The Ofsted report was enormously dispiriting there was a sense of shock among the teaching staff and unfortunately the children were understandably concerned as well Of course there are challenges at The Grange it s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but those problems are being addressed It seemed that no matter what we said or showed the inspectors they were focused on putting us into a category However it has been gratifying that so many parents have voiced their anger and confusion at its findings It doesn t help when so many boundaries are changed not just about how schools should operate but also with the exam grades and measures we have seen the furore over how this year s grades have been affected because exam boards have been told that exams are too easy so they have raised the grade boundaries Of course this affects all schools but not all school are in special measures So far so gloomy But the challenges which have been thrown at the school might well in future be seen as acting as a catalyst which will see it become a more successful school and one which will be even more valuable to the community Answer It was obvious that Mrs Thomas and the governing body needed to come up with a plan which would see them avoid going down the sponsored academy route The answer or at least part of it lay only a mile or so from the Grange in the shape of another secondary school Sundorne Vocational courses are a strength at The Grange School It was recognised that the two schools complemented each other s strengths very well under head teacher Geoff Pettengell Sundorne has for some years been a high achieving school academically with excellent Maths and English departments in particular fields in which The Grange has performed less well But The Grange has an enviable tradition in the performance arts as well as strong vocational courses such as car mechanics and hairdressing The two have now formed a federation the North Shrewsbury Federation which was conceived after a consultation period with parents who according to Mrs Thomas were extremely supportive of the idea The Grange and Sundorne work very well together and it helps I think that they are a similar size with about 500 pupils each says Mrs Thomas The Grange is still called The Grange and Sundorne keeps its name too The Grange retains its identity and has an overall head and exactly the same goes for Sundorne To strengthen leadership and management the federation has a principal overseeing both schools Geoff Pettengell with whom I have enjoyed an excellent relationship now assumes that role His deputy takes on the post of head teacher at Sundorne and after my departure Geoff will be acting head of The Grange until a long term replacement is found Geoff Pettengell We are now several weeks into the federation and

  • Landmark Woolworths decision ends years of uncertainty - Shropshire Business Today
    consult with workers based in smaller stores or branches and so they did not qualify for compensation The legislation only covers staff working in an establishment where more than 20 people are employed Union Usdaw secured an Employment Appeal Tribunal victory in 2013 on behalf of the Woolworths staff and 1 200 staff of clothing chain Ethel Austin However the ECJ has reversed this decision which Amber said will reassure employers with staff working at multiple sites This long awaited decision will be welcomed by business leaders and bring clarity where there has been uncertainty for nearly two years Following a sustained period of economic slowdown businesses across a number of sectors have restructured and this has included job losses where necessary The ruling will be reassuring to those employers who followed the law on redundancies and consultation but still feared they could face action from staff in branches with fewer than 20 employees The ruling held that an establishment in the collective redundancy legislation refers to an individual workplace not to the employer as a whole The ECJ ruled that Woolworths was right to count each store as a separate establishment And therefore it did not need to engage in collective consultation with staff who worked in a store with a headcount of less than 20 However Amber warned employers should not assume that the courts will always view each branch or store as being a separate establishment The answer will still depend on the facts of each case for instance where stores are centrally managed or have multiple units within the same shopping centre then collective consultation could still apply Nevertheless the news is certainly a welcome relief for larger employers and should cut down on red tape during restructuring exercises SHARE Facebook Twitter tweet Previous article Put
