I am not sure what that means.  What would you put in the LICENSE file?
(When you say "a LICENSE header", I think you mean a license notice.)

Normally we have a file COPYING which contains only a copy of the GNU
GPL version 3, and each file has a license notice.

Each file also has a copyright notice in the name of the Free Software
