The school lunch booking system will be down from 6pm until midnight tomorrow, Wednesday. There may be times when it works during this period, but we have been asked to alert parents and carers to this issue. If you can therefore please book early it will be much appreciated.

Supply chain issues are hitting schools as they are hitting supermarkets, in these trying times we work extremely hard to ensure that we can still offer meals to children.

Coats

16 Oct 2021

As the weather begin to turn colder and there is more chance of rain, more children are wearing their school coats. We appreciate that children, sadly, sometimes mislay items of school uniform. We try to reunite items of uniform and children as much as we can. If items of uniform are labelled this process is far easier for us and the likelihood of the items being returned to its owner is far greater. Could parents/carers please ensure school coats are clearly labelled.
