Thursday 7th October
As a school, we have to provide information to the Department for Education (DfE), which dictates how much funding the school receives. As you know, the more funding we receive, the better provision we can provide for your children.
One of the key funding categories is how many children take up Universal Free School Meals (UFSM) on census day. All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free meal (hot dinner) every day. Some parents choose not to take this offer and send their children with a packed lunch.
We always try to ensure that on census day, we have the most popular meal choices available. On Thursday, we have changed the menu to ‘children’s favourite food’ which has pizza, sausages, fish and curly fries as the main meals and doughnuts for pudding!
We would like your help! Please try to encourage your child to take up the UFSM offer but especially on Thursday this week.
