Free School Meals Reminder

I hope you are having a lovely Easter break. If you are sitting back, gazing out of the window and wondering what on earth you might do next (unlikely I know), well here’s an idea; how about checking to see if you are eligible for free school meals for your children? There’s no time like the present!

Whatever year your child is in, you can apply. Even if your child is in Reception, Y1 and Y2 and automatically receives free school meals, it is important to still register, as the school receives extra funding that can benefit your child and help them to achieve more in school.

Maybe your circumstances have changed and you are not sure if they qualify or not? Simply Google ‘Hampshire Free School Meals’ and follow the directions, or follow the link below to see if your child is eligible;

If you have any problems filling any of the forms in, then please contact school and I will do my best to help you.

Internet Safety

In Mr Cunningham’s latest blog he has reported on how Year 5 have been attending computing classes at Oaklands. As well as increasing digital literacy skills, it is also essential to keep e-safety at the core of everything we do. The following are useful links to websites full of advice and information on keeping children safe on-line;
