Important information for year 1 school opening 8th June
Free School Meal Letter
From next week the government will not be providing any vouchers for children entitled to a free school meal.
We can provide packed lunches from our school kitchen as we did before the voucher scheme started. However, I do need you to tell me if you will be coming to collect a lunch so that no food is wasted.
The children who are coming to school who are entitled to a free meal will get one. All infants in school can also have a free meal even if you are not in receipt of benefits.
If your child is not in school but entitled to a free meal please ring the school office on 0161 284 5464 so we can add you to our list.
If your child is bringing his/her own packed lunch please send it in a bag we can throw away.
Thank you and stay safe.
Letter from Mrs Buckley
We hope you are al safe and well. The current weather is amazing!
Arrangements have changed today as we begin to welcome more children back to school.
By tomorrow, when some year 6 children return, we will have 8 ‘bubbles’. So instead of our staff working on a rota system, they will be assigned to a ‘bubble’. The ‘bubbles’ will not mix. This means that if staff are absent for any reason we may not be able to keep the ‘bubbles’ open. Unfortunately, this applies to key worker groups too. We can’t put ‘spare’ staff into a bubble. We will try to give you notice if we can because of your working pattern but it may be last minute.
2 reminders – if your child is bringing a packed lunch it must be in a bag that we can throw away. And – we are back in uniform, staff and children.
- Please delete your school jotter app and reinstall it. Then, search for Yew Tree Community School.
- Some children are making videos on YouTube. If you are happy for your children to do this, please ensure that they have their privacy settings set. If they do not have a private account, it means their videos are accessible by anyone.
