It has been wonderful to have had the first couple of weeks with children back in school. As you know, we have started the term with providing packed lunches but as the season starts to become a little cooler, we are now in a position to begin rolling out hot lunches to children in Pre-school, Reception, Y1 & Y2 in the first instance.
We will be offering hot meals at lunchtime as from Monday 28th September with the menu options as attached. We would be grateful if you would book your child's lunches as soon as possible in order that we can order appropriately. Please note, any existing bookings for next week will all be cancelled, so parents will need to re-book anyway.
Please be assured that appropriate hygiene practices will be in place for children using the school hall for dining, and bubbles (classes) of children will continue to be kept separate.
It is our intention to provide hot meals for KS2 children, after half term, but in the meantime provision of packed lunches will continue as per the sandwich option attached.

I hope to capture the essence of this meeting in the following summary.
Please also see the PowerPoint shared during the meeting.
I hope you are all enjoying the holiday, despite the recent excessively rainy weather!
I want to let you know of the measures we have in place for the full school return on Tuesday 8th September. We are keen for the children to return to their education and recognise how vital it is for their mental and physical wellbeing, offering them a more regular routine. By following the guidance outlined in this letter we hope to make the return to school as smooth as possible for you and your children. Please be reassured that we are still monitoring the situation with great care, and overall safety is central to the measures we are putting into place.
I do hope you are all keeping well. Now that many of the restrictions regarding traveling overseas have been relaxed, we are aware that some families will be planning holidays abroad. Please check government guidance about this, particularly regarding returning to the UK. https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
Children in our current reception – Year 5 pupils will have received an invite to come to school for a morning or afternoon session on Tuesday 21st July.
