There are several children each week who do not have their lunches ordered.  Whilst Mrs Gallagher is able to check the system and order for those not listed, there are occasions when this is not possible or children are missed. Please can you ensure that you order meals if needed.  Not only will this save office time, it will ensure that your child is not missed and not having to choose food from whatever we have left over.  As you know, we do not have a kitchen and are not able to cook on site so the only meals we are sent are those that are ordered.


Can I also ask the parents of children who bring a packed lunch to ensure they provide spoons for yoghurts.  We are constantly having to replenish the teaspoons due to spoons being given out and not returned.



Our website designer, Neil Fleming, will soon be re-designing the school’s website to provide greater functionality.  This is an opportunity to create a site that suits your needs.  If you have any ideas of what you would like to see on the website or information that could be presented in a different way then please let us know.  Equally if there is something that you like and find useful then give us that feedback too and we will ensure that it is a feature we keep.


Midday Supervisor

I am very happy to inform you that we have appointed a new midday supervisor.  Mrs Gemma Johnson will be joining our team after half term.  Mrs Johnson lives locally and knows a few of our pupils already.  She will be transporting the children’s lunches from Dalton and will also be assisting in lunch time supervision.  We are very happy to have Mrs Johnson join us and hope she enjoys working with your wonderful children as much as we do.


Extra-Curricular Clubs

The extra-curricular club timetable will remain the same after half term however there will be some change to the groupings for squash, fun with food and science club.  If you are unsure if this affects your child then please ask.  We have had some staff absence this term that has impacted on the adult delivering some clubs and their activity.  This should be rectified soon but we will continue to ensure that the children do not miss out as a result.
