Students with injuries
If your child has an injury which may affect their mobility around school (particularly if they are using crutches) please could you telephone school, as a risk assessment may be required before they return. Thank you.
Information Regarding School Closures
In the event of the decision being made not to open school, due to extreme weather or other circumstances, a message will be sent to the local radio stations to broadcast the closure, regular updates will be posted on the school website (remember to regularly refresh the page to view the latest information) and the ParentMail service will be used to text parents/carers who have provided their contact details. More information is available in the document below:
Free School Meals Entitlement/Pupil Premium
Could your child be eligible for free school meals?
In these difficult financial times, we want to make sure you’re getting all the help you’re due.
A lot of people don’t claim free school meals even though they’re entitled. That’s why Derbyshire County Council have launched a campaign, to encourage people to check if they’re eligible.
You don’t need to worry about other children knowing your child gets free school meals. Only the school and catering staff will know.
You could save £400 a year for each child and your children could benefit from a good hot meal at lunchtime.
If you get any of these benefits, you could be eligible:
Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance or an Income-related Employment and Support Allowance.
The guarantee element of State Pension Credit.
Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.
Child Tax Credit (with an annual income of less that £16,190).
You will not be eligible if you are claiming Working Tax Credit.
If any of the above criteria apply to you, please complete the application form and return to Derbyshire County Council as quickly as possible, together with evidence of your benefit.
