Important notice for parents/carers of children eligible for Free School Meals: 5th Jan 2021


Dear Parents and carers,

As we await instruction from the Government regarding support for free school meal families, we would like to offer your child(ren) a school packed lunch tomorrow (5th Jan 2021). This can be collected from the school between 10am-11am via the Hawkins Ave gate.  


On Wednesday, we will be able to offer a food parcel containing food staples (milk, bread, eggs, etc) that will cover lunches for your child(ren) for the rest of the week. These will be available 1100-1230 from the Hawkins Ave gate.


As soon as we get any other updates in regard to whether we will be continuing with food parcels or using the voucher system we used at Christmas, we will be in touch with those that are eligible.  


In the meantime if there is any other support we can give you please contact
