During this period of remote learning, we will continue to support our students who are eligible for free school meals through the weekly provision of food hampers. This has been ongoing for those students affected by periods of self-isolation and now will become a universal offer for all students who qualify for this provision. A weekly email is currently sent to all eligible families with a link to a questionnaire requesting a hamper. This includes details regarding collection of the hamper.
If your child is eligible for free school meals and you have any queries regarding the provision of these hampers, please contact Mr Murphy on this email address:
