Y6 Enterprise Week

Y6 would be grateful for the donation of any of the following: small, smooth pebbles, old CDs/DVDs, glass jars, plastic bottles, wool, craft paints and any other craft supplies such as beads, ribbon, buttons etc.

Queen’s Birthday Lunch

On Decades Day, Friday, 8th July, there will be a Queen’s Birthday Picnic lunch, which all children can participate in. This will consist of a selection of sandwiches, a cake, a drink and a piece of fruit. If your child already has a school dinner, they will automatically have this picnic lunch on the day. If they would like this meal as a “one off” it can booked on Parent Pay for that day only. If you are unable to do this on line, a letter can be obtained from the school office to pay at the local shop.

Parent Pay

You may be aware that Parent Pay altered their web site last week and this has caused some problems. When you log on now, you need to “top up” your account and then allocate the required amount to an item ie dinners, zoo trip etc. In addition, we have had a problem with the menus, in that the published menu became out of sync with the kitchen cycle following the changes. We apologise for this and assure you it will be sorted completely by Monday, 27th June. In the meantime, there may be some changes to the published menu but all children are being provided with a meal. Please could we also request that any lunch bands your children may have brought home by mistake are returned to school.
