IPF - the governments pulling the rug!

If you have IPF (individual pupil funding) for the whole of this school year - think again!!! I have a letter that states my DS in year 6 has funding for the whole of this school year,but school received letters today saying all IPF funding had to be reapplied for as the system is changing, cut off due in April.

This is not only morally wrong, but it must be illegal? To suddenly change funding, after granting it?

I am so angry, you can't piss about with a child's education. Of course we are reapplying and if they decline it I will break into Michael Gove's house for a serious talk.

Anyone else aware of this?
