We are mindful that a lot of people will be experiencing a change in financial circumstances at this difficult time. Support for children who are eligible for Free School Meals continues and we continue to provide and deliver free school meals over the Easter period through to the end of the Spring break.
From Monday 20th April we will issue weekly supermarket vouchers of £15 per week as part of a Government funded scheme and this will apply for all eligible pupils.
You may not have claimed for Free School Meals before, however it is really easy to check your eligibility online. The School will receive the information securely and we can then administer your payments. Please find a link below:

If you have any questions please contact the school office (9-3.30pm). We are open throughout the Easter break.
Another busy week in school has included us opening a full final key worker bubble as well as welcoming some children back to school for a visit with their class teacher.
Optional Class Visits
Year 1 and 2 optional class visits took place on Wednesday with more year group visits arranged over the coming weeks. It was a pleasure to organise an opportunity for those children who have not set foot in school since March to visit and meet with their class teacher. The vast majority of children returned full of enthusiasm and energy which is always lovely to see. In some instances, children were initially a little apprehensive and unsure and whilst this soon changed to happiness and excitement it underlines why we as a school wanted our children to have an opportunity to experience school before the summer break. The children all left feeling reassured and we look forward to welcoming them back at the start of the new academic year!
Transition phone calls
Staff have been busy making transition phone calls this week and these will continue over the coming weeks. Thank you for your engagement and continued support throughout this process as we ensure a smooth transition for September.
School in September
We have now received guidance regarding whole-school opening in September. The school guidance sets out a range of measures to protect children and staff. Schools have been instructed to implement class or year sized bubbles, as well as encouraging staff and pupils, where they are able, to keep their distance from each other and avoiding touching. All schools have been asked to work to implement other policies in line with their own risk assessment and in a way that ensures pupils can be taught a broad and balanced curriculum. Other measures set out in the guidance include:
- teachers to distance from each other and older students where possible
- increasing the frequency of cleaning
- reducing the use of frequently shared items
- minimising contact in corridors
As a school we are confident our current protocols and practices are in-keeping with the guidance and whilst we will review them in order to welcome every child back in September, we hope you will be reassured that our current systems meet with such requirements. Further details and arrangements will be communicated with you once they have been finalised. We are very much looking forward to welcoming all of our school community back in September.
