Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us during the heatwave this week. We are very grateful for the generous loan of additional fans, gazebos and donation of ices to keep children cool.

FOSS Summer Fair

Thank you to FOSS for organising a lovely summer fair last week, and to everyone who came along to support us.

Back to School

Don’t forget that school starts for children on Tuesday 6th September.

Summer Reading Challenge

North Yorkshire Library Service are once again running the popular reading challenge this summer. This is a great opportunity to encourage your child to read as much as possible during the holiday, as they can collect prizes and gain a certificate. Do please consider registering them – it is completely free to take part.

School Lunches

A letter has been shared today regarding the new catering service from September. Please see the new menu below.


Please note that due to the rising cost of inflation, the price of a school meal will rise to £2.50 in September.


Children can still decide daily whether they are having a school dinner or packed lunch.


Please ensure you discuss the menu each day with your child so they can decide what they would like to order. Once they know their choices, they will choose this each morning with their teacher during registration.


Each day there are 4 choices, either the hot dinner, hot vegetarian option, jacket potato with a choice of toppings or a sandwich. The sandwich and jacket potato always come with a selection of vegetables/salad on the side and have the full pudding choice for that day.


Packed Lunches - if you are sending grapes in your child's packed lunch, can you please ensure that these are cut in half.

Autumn 2022 Lunch Menu

From w/c 5th September 2022 - w/c 16th December 2022. This is our new menu for the Autumn Term

Parent Volunteers

We are delighted to be able to have volunteers into schools again, and would welcome parents to help us. If you are able to give any time to us, either on an ad-hoc or regular basis, you will need to complete a DBS application. Please contact the office for more information.

Application for Pupil Absence Form

This form should be completed by the parent/carer and returned to the school as far in advance as possible and preferably preferably with sufficient notice before the first intended day of absence.
