Weekly Newsletter - Friday 5th February

Headteacher: Mrs L Nicholls 


Dear Parents and Carers,

At last January is over and February is here. By the end of this month the sun will not start to set until 5.41 pm. Spring is on the way and there are brighter days ahead. 


Free School Meals 

We have received confirmation that Havering will continue to fund the school meal holiday scheme for those most in need during the half term break, and from Monday 8th February, families will be able to apply for the £15 for each child in receipt of free schools meals to support them while their school is closed for half term. 

The applications window will open at 9am on Monday 8th February, and will close at 5pm on Friday 12th February.
families who received a payment for October half term and Christmas holiday period do not need to reapply, and will automatically receive the funds into their nominated bank account by Friday 12th February. 

Eligible families who make a new application in February and have not received payment via the school meal holiday scheme in the past, are expected to receive payments over half term.
The scheme is for children who are of statutory school age and are eligible under the benefit criteria for free school meals during term time. The scheme is administered by each local authority to its eligible residents regardless of the borough of the school they attend, so if parents/carers live in Havering but their child goes to a school outside of Havering, they apply to Havering. 

If they live outside of Havering but their child goes to a Havering school, they need to apply for the scheme with the borough they live in. All infant age children receive free school meals, but only children in receipt of benefit related free school meals are eligible for this extra support. 

For more information about the scheme and for details on the eligibility criteria, parents/carers can visit https://www.havering.gov.uk/covid19mealsupport


Half Term: Monday 15th - Friday 19th February

The children’s last day this half term will be Friday 12th February and the second half of the Spring term resumes on Monday 22nd February. The first day back after half term (Monday 22nd February) is an INSET day and there will not be any remote learning set or bubbles in school on this day. Remote learning will resume on Tuesday 23rd February and pupils who attend school will return on Tuesday 23rd at 8.30am .
