Friday Newsletter – 11th September 2020

DE & PHA Guidance

We are sending out information today which has been sent to us from the Education Authority. Please read it carefully and keep somewhere safe as a reference point should your child become unwell.

Lunch Menu

For week beginning Monday 14th September, we will be following Week 1 on the school lunch menu. There has been a slight change to menu – Tuesday’s lunch will be fish fingers, mash, veg and gravy instead of Irish Stew


If your child requires medication to be taken/stored in school e.g. an inhaler, please inform the class teacher and a medication form will be sent home. Please ensure this is completed and returned as soon as possible and ensure we have in date, prescribed medication in school. The only medication we are allowed to administer is that which has been prescribed by a doctor.

Milk Money

Milk for this term will cost £11.76. If you would like your child to take milk, please book and pay for it via school money. If we have not received booking and money by Friday 18th September, we will assume that your child will not be taking milk. Children in reception class are entitled to milk with no charge.

Breakfast Club

Our ‘socially distanced’ breakfast club is working very well. Please remember that if your child needs to be in school before 8.40am, they must use breakfast club (£1.05). This is the only supervision in school at this time.
