Parent Contact Information

It is very important to inform school immediately if there is a change of home address, home telephone number, emergency contact number, medication or medical diagnosis. The school uses the Weduc App as a means of communicating to parents. If you require access to the App please contact us for details.

School Meals

Pupils stay on the premises for lunch. They may either bring a packed lunch or take a school meal. Those families who are in receipt of Income Support or Income based Jobseekers allowance are eligible to free school meals. School will provide the relevant form for the person in receipt of the benefit to complete (National Insurance Number and date of birth required). The completed form should be returned to school when it will be forwarded to the Local Authority for verification.
