School Dinners in September

 

Please note:

 

  • As from 1st September 2019, the Education Catering Service is increasing the cost of school meals to £2.30 per day/ £11.50 per week.

 

  • All children moving up to Year 3 after the summer break will no longer be eligible for free school meals under the government programme.

 

If you wish to change your child’s provision for lunch, either from packed lunches to school dinners, or school dinners to packed lunches, please let Miss Fitzgerald know in the school office, giving at least one week’s notice.  This will ensure that enough meals are made in the school kitchen, and also that you are not continuing to be charged for meals if you are now providing a packed lunch.  If the office is unaware of a meal change, you will be liable for paying for the dinners that have been provided for your child!

Thank you

 

School Uniform

 

Uniform is currently available from Debonair in Oldham.

We always look forward to seeing all of our pupils looking smart in their full school uniform in September.

Even though it is coming to the end of the school year, all of our children are still expected to attend school in their full school uniform.

 

Every child should be wearing:

Yellow polo shirt or white shirt

Green sweat shirt or cardigan

Grey shirt or trousers

Black or grey socks

Black school shoes (not trainers)

 

PE kits are also part of the uniform, and should consist of:

White t-shirt

Green sports shorts

Black pumps and outdoor trainers

 

Please make sure that ALL of your child’s uniform is clearly labelled with their name to avoid any lost items.

Thank you.

 Please note that:

  • We return to school on Wednesday, 4th September after the summer break.

Toys, Books and Dressing-Up Items

 

We are always very grateful for any donations of appropriate toys, books and dressing up clothes for our younger classes.  If you are planning a clear out over the summer and have any items that are still in good condition, please consider donating them to us for our younger children to enjoy.

Thank you

 

Staff Changes

 

Next week, when say we good-bye to our Year 6 children, we will also be saying a fond farewell to Mrs Connell, our current Year 1 teacher.

Mrs Connell is leaving us this summer to take up a position in a school out of the borough.  We all wish her every success with her future ventures.
