Free School Meal offered to all children

As you may already know, the funding our school receives is based upon census returns that we have to complete each term. This enables us to provide the best education and services that we can for our children and their families.  The amount of funding is dependent upon the figures that we submit, with particular emphasis on the uptake of school dinners.

In order to help us to do the best for your children, we are asking for your support. This term’s census is on Thursday 3rd October 2019 and it is really important that as many children as possible are in school on this day and have registered for any funding that they are entitled to.

Therefore, we are delighted to offer every child in the school a free school meal on us, especially if your child usually has a home prepared packed lunch.  Even if your child does not plan on having a school lunch again, we would like to encourage each child to have a taste of our delicious food from our new caterers.

To encourage all children to have a tasty hot meal on census day, our chef Mary has created a special Seaside themed menu of Fish and Chips with Jelly and Ice cream.

We will also be running a raffle for all the parents that complete the attached form.  Each completed form will be given a raffle ticket and will be entered into a draw with the lucky person winning a £50 gift voucher.

Thank you for supporting us in obtaining the best possible funding for your children’s education.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or questions regarding this.
