Dear Parents/Carers of Y3 and Y4 Pupils
Re – Belgrade Theatre Trip Tuesday 7th December
The trip for the children to the Belgrade will still be going ahead tomorrow as planned.  We have done a full review of the situation in Year 4 this morning and many of our children have tested negative over the weekend with a handful of children receiving a positive result.  Those children will now not be in school as following isolation guidance and those children who have provided a positive result will receive a refund of their trip cost paid.
Please be assured that we are taking the safety and wellbeing of staff and pupils seriously and therefore the two year groups will be travelling on seperate coaches to the theatre and will also sit within their year group bubbles at the theatre.  We have consulted with the theatre in detail this morning so they are aware of the current situation.
If you have any queries or concerns regarding this please do not hesitate to contact us at school.

For Attention of Parents/Carers of Pupils eligible for Free School Meals (this does not apply to Universal Infant Free School Meals YR-Y2)

Dear Parent/Carer

We have been advised that those eligible for Free School Meals will receive food vouchers for the Christmas holiday.  Following the DWP Press Release on 6th October regarding a new Household Support Fund, £500m support is now available to help those most in need as we enter the final stages of recovery.

Each eligible pupil will be entitled to £33 – 11 days @ £3.00 and we will be providing Asda vouchers again

Vouchers can be collected on Tuesday/Wednesday 14th/15th December from the school office and we would be grateful if you could contact the office from Wednesday 8th December to arrange a suitable time for collection on one of these two days.  Please note vouchers cannot be collected before the 14th December and we would ask you to book a time to collect so we can avoid large numbers of people collecting from the office at the start or end of the school day.

If you have any queries regarding this then please speak with a member of the office team or email me directly on [email protected].

Kind Regards

Marie Tidmarsh

Dear Parents/Carers
