Message to Students

Friday 4th October 2019

Dear Parents/Carers
We have had a report that there has been a driver of a blue car that has been trying to speak to students on their way home from school.
We are making students aware of this today and are advising them to do the following: If this happens to you, do not speak to the driver but report it to the school or Police as soon as possible.
We are working with the local community including the police.

Free School Meals

Friday 4th October 2019

Does your child qualify for a free school meal?

🍏 Did you know that, subject to criteria, your child
could be getting a free meal at school?

🥑 Did you also know that, if you are eligible, the school receives extra funding to spend on helping your child succeed
at school?

🍇 We believe that many families in our community are
eligible but have not yet applied.

DON’T MISS OUT – students will be given a card to take home for parents/carers to complete (see images).
If you fill in the information on the back of the card and return it
to Student Services we can check if you are eligible.

Spare cards are available in reception or at student services.

All order requests will be posted to Tempest Photography by the school on Monday 14th October 2019. Any late orders that are returned to student services after this time will be returned to the student and orders will need to be posted to Tempest direct.
