Learning Reviews

Thank you for attending Learning Reviews this week. It was wonderful to see everyone being able to come back into school again. We hope that you and your child found this process useful. If teachers were not able to share current assessment information with you at the meeting, this will be sent home in the next couple of weeks.

Eco Warriors Tip

This week's water-saving tip from Marcus, one of our Eco Warriors is - use a bowl in the sink when washing fruit, vegetables or dishes. You can then use the waste water to water your plants.

School Lunches

Please see the new Spring 2022 Lunch menu below. Next week we will be on Week 1 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.

Spring 2022 Lunch Menu

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

Application for Pupil Absence Form
