Medicine
If your child needs medication given to them within school time can you please bring their medication to the school office and complete a Parental Agreement Form so that staff can administer and record this accordingly.

Free School Meals Eligibility
Our funding is partly influenced by the number of families we have claiming free school meals. Even if you think your child will not want them everyday it is still worth claiming. Below is the latest criteria for qualifying.
