Changes to the Penalty Notice Process for unauthorised absence

We are officially an academy

On the 1st June, we officially became part of the Attenborough Trust and are now an academy school.

We will continue to provide high quality education for your children and working together in partnership with the trust we will be able to offer many benefits for our pupils, staff and the wider community.

School lunch - price 

We have ben advised by Leicester Traded Services that the price of school lunches for pupils in year 3 to 6 is increasing in the new academic year.  The price will be £2.65 per day.

Pupils in reception to year 2 will continue to receive universal free school meals that are funded by the Government.

If you are in receipt of certain benefits, you can apply for free school meals.  Please see the office if you have any queries about this or complete an online application on:

Exciting Opportunity - Parent Governor Vacancies

 

We are hoping to recruit new Parent Governors to join our Governing Body.

The governing body is responsible for both the overall strategic direction of the school and for promoting high standards. It is a way of giving back to our community that will help all of our children.

If you have an interest in the school, an interest in the welfare of our pupils & community, and have the time and willingness to get involved, you are the person we are looking for.  

Governors need to be able to commit to two termly meetings in the evening, and at least once during the academic year be able to visit the school to see what is happening, reporting back to all Governors.

 Governors are volunteers who give time to benefit the whole school community.

 If you would like further information, or would like to volunteer please email me, Ms Gita.
