50th Birthday Celebrations

Thank you to everyone who has helped get our 50th Anniversary Party ready and to all the parents and carers who have volunteered to help tomorrow. We really appreciate your support and we hope you all have fun at this community event. It’s set to be a wonderful afternoon.

Any Year 5 and 6 children that are taking part in the ABBA singing, should meet Mr Bray in the playground at 12:30 ready to sing at 12.40pm.

Free School Meals

The school census will take place on the 7th October. This is a really important day which will inform future funding for our school. It is therefore really important that all families that are entitled, whatever year group they are in, claim Free School Meals. This provides the school with additional funding which we can use to support children’s learning.

Your child can get free school meals if your combined annual household income is below £16,190 (as assessed by HMRC) and you get one of the following benefits:

  • income-based: income support or jobseeker’s allowance (not eligible if on contribution-based jobseeker’s allowance);
  • income-related: employment support allowance (not eligible if on contribution-based employment support allowance);
  • universal credit;
  • income support;
  • the guaranteed element of state pension credit;
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999;
  • child tax credit only;

You can apply at: https://lewisham.gov.uk/myservices/education/student-pupil-support/free-school-meals-and-extra-support-for-your-child.

Please call the office and ask to speak to Trish for more advice.

Year 6 PGL Trip

Our wonderful Year 6 are off to PGL centre at Windmill Hill next week. This will be three days of fun, thrills and challenges that focus on team work and pushing themselves to try new things.
