Suspension To Lunchtime Passes

As a result of the current situation, lunch breaks have been shortened to 30 minutes to accommodate the changes to our daily timetable. Students with a lunchtime pass will not be allowed off-site during their allocated lunch break because of the reduction in time available to them.

Please ensure that your child brings their food/drink with them when they come to school.

Thank you for your support and apologies for any inconvenience.

Nut And Seed Free School

Our school endeavours as far as possible to be a nut-free school, this includes sesame seeds.  We have quite a number of students in school who have severe nut allergies and can be seriously affected by someone else who is eating or may have recently eaten nuts.  

Please encourage your child to understand that eating a nut product (including items such as peanut butter sandwiches and Nutella bars) can have a serious effect on a student later on in the classroom.

Free School Meals

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)

If you are a parent or carer, and you get one of the benefits listed, your child may receive free school meals, but you need to apply for them.
