School Closure Information

Please click here to find out more information

We will be able to support families who usually receive benefits-related free school meals by providing a picnic lunch box for families to collect from school. This does not apply to Universal Infant Free School Meals and so children in Reception – Year 2 will not be able to collect a school lunch from Monday unless their families are entitled to benefits-related free school meals.

If you are eligible for benefits-related free school meals, please contact the school office as soon as possible to confirm that you would like to collect a picnic lunch box for your children from Monday 23 March.
