Closure of the school kitchen

Regretfully it is not currently viable to keep the school kitchen open . So from Monday 18 January 2021 all children attending school will need to bring a packed lunch from home.

Children currently in receipt of benefits-related free school meals will be catered for until such time as vouchers can be issued. They have been contacted separately.

If anyone feels they may now be entitled to claim free school meals please apply online at

We do look forward to resuming full service in due course. In fact I think it is fair to say we all long for normality to return.

Thank you for your understanding.

Season’s Greetings

Sorry to mention the horrid Covid word on the last day of term but I have been asked a hypothetical question and I have sought advice from the Department of Health and thought it best to share this with you all.

If your child develops any of the coronavirus symptoms within two days of being in school and then has a positive test we would ask that you email me at school and we will then be able to provide track and trace with the details of all those in the same bubble in order for them to isolate. If a child develops symptoms later in the holidays you would just advise us on return to school. I very much hope this is not the case for any of you, we want you to be able to enjoy Christmas with your families and then want you all back happy, healthy and rested on Wednesday 6 January 2021.

On a happier note I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and very happy Christmas and hope 2021 sees us all being able to return to normal life albeit not immediately – the end is in sight!
