Please can I remind you that we are a nut free school. Please check the ingredients of lunch box items before sending them in to school. We have several children in school with severe nut allergies who could become very ill if they come into contact with nut products.
The Parent Power comparison tool allows parents (in fact anyone) to look at getting the best prices from all the UK energy providers for their home supply of gas and electricity, just like any other comparison site. Switching is easy and for every successful switch on parent power, your school will receive a financial benefit. The more parents, (grandparents and friends) that use the service, the better and hopefully together we can make a significant difference to schools across the UK. Please follow the link for more information. https://parentpower.zenergi.co.uk/
There is a collection box at the junior school for knitting needles, wool and knitted squares that we are collecting for the group called the Chuft Blanketeers.
