Water Bottles

Can we remind parents that every child should bring a water bottle to school. Juice is only allowed at lunch time.

 

Fruit

Fruit is provided each day free of charge to all the Infants. If you have children in the Juniors (Y3 and above) who wish to have a snack at playtime, please could they bring their own fruit to school. The children cannot have sweets, biscuits, crisps etc at playtime.

'Take a Shot at it'

Our reading challenge is called ‘Take A Shot At It’. The class that reads the most will be awarded our new reading trophy. The class will also be presented with a book of their choice for their reading area.

Please encourage your child to read.

 

PE Kit

Please send the PE kit on a Monday and leave it at school until Friday.

 

Free School Meals

There is a new on-line service for parents wishing to apply for Free School Meals. When you log onto the Doncaster website and search for Free School Meals, the page now has an option to apply on-line. Once completed, the application is automatically checked against the Department for Education’s Eligibility Checking Service (ECS) and instantly tells you if you qualify for free school meals. The application is then automatically forwarded to the Free School Meals team who will process the application, usually on the same date it is received, and an e-mail confirming their entitlement will be sent to the school the following morning.

 

Building Fund

Each year we kindly ask for your generosity towards the Diocesan schools Building Fund. We are asking for £30 per family (£10 per term, £5 per half term or 75p per week). If you wish to pay the full amount via cheque please make it payable to Our Lady’s School Building Fund. This is a voluntary request. There is no obligation to make any contribution.
