If you would like to take part please send £2.60 for each adult and £2.15 for your child in an envelope marked ‘family lunch’ (if your child is receipt of Universal Free School meals or Free School Meals, you do not have to pay for them). The lunch will begin at 11:30. Please sign in at the office, collect your child or children and enjoy your lunch. If you have more than one child in school, they may also join you for lunch – siblings only please. Please do not arrive before 11.30am as we do not have the space to let you into school. For safeguarding reasons, it is really important that you leave through the main entrance door after your lunch and don’t walk around school. Your child will then go out to play as normal. Mobile phones must not be used in school – thank you.
