Census Day 'Burgers and Dogs' Special LunchAs you may already know, the funding our school receives is based upon census returns that we have to complete each term. 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 20th January 2020 and it is really important that as many children as possible in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have the free school lunch that they are entitled to.
To encourage all children to have a hot meal on census day, our chef Gail, along with Chartwells, has created a special menu as you will see below.
All children that usually take a school dinner in Key Stage 2 - years 3, 4, 5 & 6 will automatically receive the menu as usual, however if your child usually has a packed lunch sent in from home and would like to try this special themed menu, please complete the form and hand to the office by Thursday 13th January 2022. The meal will cost the usual price of £2.15 per child per day and is payable under School Dinner payment option in your ParentPay account.
Thank you for supporting us in obtaining the best possible funding for your children’s education.

The Halo Code for SchoolsOur school champions the right of staff and students to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black staff and students’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance. We welcome Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps. At this school, we recognise and celebrate our staff and students’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on anyone’s ability to succeed. The Halo Code was developed by the Halo Collective and brings together organisations and schools who have made a commitment to work towards creating a future without hair discrimination.
