Christmas Lunch

Dear Parents and Carers,


When is Christmas lunch?


Christmas lunch, for Reception to Y6 only, will take place on the following days:


· Wednesday 9th December         -         Reception, Y1 and Y2

· Thursday 10th December - Y3 and Y4

· Friday 11th December - Y5 and Y6


We have had to split it over three separate days so that we minimise mixing of children from different year groups (Reception, Y1 and Y2 already have lunch in the hall at separate times, with thorough cleaning in between, so they don’t mix).  The menu is on our newsletter, on our website and on Facebook.


Will Nursery children be able to have Christmas lunch?


Unfortunately this means that our 30 hours Nursery children will not be able to have a Christmas lunch this year, as we will not be able to fit them into the hall safely. 


What if my child normally has a packed lunch?


If they don’t want a school lunch, they can still eat their packed lunch in the hall on their Christmas lunch day.


If they would like a Christmas lunch, you can pay for this online by visiting .  If your child is in Reception, Y1 or Y2 there is no charge.  Please do not send any money into school for this.


What is the school lunch option when it’s not my child’s Christmas lunch day?


If your child usually has a school dinner, they will be given a packed lunch on the days that is not their Christmas lunch e.g. Y2 will have a packed lunch on Thursday and Friday next week (provided by Catering Services).  Normal menus will be in place on the Monday and Tuesday of next week and the whole of the final week of term.


If you have any questions about this, or need any advice, please give us a ring on 2502207 or email


Yours sincerely,


Mrs C.L. Withers



COLLECTION FROM AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION - All after school clubs collections will be from outside the main school entrance so please turn up at the collection time for your child (to avoid having lots of people waiting around outside of the building). The only access point will be through the front gates for safeguarding reasons. No other external gates will be open (e.g. the gates to the line) - this is because our afterschool childcare children have supervised access to our yard and field and it would not be safe to leave other gates open. Please remember to wear a face mask on site where possible and, unless your child is in Y6 and has permission to walk home, we will expect an adult to collect every child. Thank you for your support with this so that we can ensure safety for all.
