Wildflower Seeds

Do you have any wildflower seeds? We want to plant these in the wildlife area to attract insects and butterflies through the summer, and any donations would be gratefully received.

Covid Disruptions

You will be aware that we are continuing to experience a number of disruptions in school due to Coronavirus. We would like to especially thank all staff for willingly changing plans to provide cover for each other, often at short notice, and children who have adapted to changes extremely well.

Sports Leaders

Sports Leaders have been busy teaching pupils to play hockey this week.

School Lunches

Please see the new Spring 2022 Lunch menu below. Next week we will be on Week 3 of lunches.

Children can 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.

We will be having the Heinz Special Dinner on Thursday 20th January. The usual jacket potatoes and sandwiches will still be available too.

Spring 2022 Lunch Menu

From w/c 4th January - w/c 4 April 2022 This is our new menu for the Spring Term
