When your child is in school they would normally receive a free school lunch. This is funded either through central Government or Southwark Council. If your child is currently at school, their usual lunch arrangements continue.  For all primary-aged children, not just Free School Meal children, there is support for lunches using our catering supplier for the coming weeks. For those children who are continuing their learning at home, we have arranged food hampers to be made up for collection from the school. 

Typical Food Hamper items: Taw Valley cheese, apples, oranges, cucumber, carrot, baking potato, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, baked beans, pasta, tomato pasta sauce, tuna chunks, lunch box malt loaf, Frubes and a loaf of bread.

NOTIFICATION FOR NURSERY, RECEPTION & YEAR 1  (January 6th): From today, unless we have already spoken with you to make arrangements, these bubbles/classes are now CLOSED. No more children can be accepted at this time.

NOTIFICATION REGARDING  IT DEVICES FOR KS2: A limited number of tablets/ Chromebooks are available on loan to support remote learning. Priority has been given to older year groups (children with the most need). We still have some devices so please contact the school office if you would like to request the loan of a device to support your child’s learning. You will need to complete this DEVICE LOAN AGREEMENT HERE. Please read this carefully, as you will need to accept responsibility for the device as laid out in the agreement.
