Please could we ask that you log onto ParentPay and book school meals for next Monday onwards as we have noted that numbers appear very low. As the latest that you can book a meal for your child is 48 hours in advance, the latest you will be able to book a meal for Monday 8th January is tomorrow. It is also possible to book meals up until the end of this half term or up until Easter.

We look forward to seeing all the children again on Monday for another busy term.
