Help needed – Special Menu

We recently contacted you about school dinners and the funding we receive towards providing free school meals to children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. On Thursday 1st October (this week) data will be collected on how many children take a school dinner on that day. This data is then used to calculate how much funding we receive for our school for this purpose. It is therefore crucial that as many children as possible in this category take a school dinner on Thursday this week. We would be very grateful if you would choose this option to support us.

On Thursday this week we are trialling for all children a special menu of:

  • Hotdogs (vegetarian option available)

as well as the usual options of:

  • Choice of bread – brown roll, white roll, wrap or baguette
  • Choice of filling – cheese, ham, tuna or egg mayo

Both choices will also include as always:

  • Pasta pot and salad
  • Cookie/ bun
  • Fruit
  • Milk shake/ water/apple juice/orange juice

Choosing a school dinner every day whilst your child is in the eligible group could potentially save you £418.00 per year! This funding from the government supports the running of the kitchen so we can provide a full service for all. If there is not enough uptake, our school doesn’t get the funding and will need to cover the cost from other areas which are already financially stretched.

Many thanks for your support.

Individual School Photographs

Weather depending, individual school photographs will take place on Tuesday 29 September.  Please ensure that only correct school uniform is worn.

Photographs will be taken outside in the school playground.  Unfortunately, unlike previous years, we will not be taking sibling group photographs this year. This includes any pre-school siblings.

If we need to postpone due to the weather, we will let you know the new date as soon as possible.  Thank you.

Consultation appointments online booking

You will be able to book your telephone consultation appointment with your child’s class teacher from this evening Friday 25th September 6pm.

These calls are a chance for the teacher to let you know how your child has settled and any emerging areas that they are working on with them. Some parents  have recently spoken to the class teacher so may not need to book one of these appointments at this time. Please be aware that we don’t have any assessment data to share with you just yet – these will take place between half term and Christmas.

The booking form will be in the News and Activity area.
