It was lovely to see so many of the children at the transition events having a great time despite the weather being a little disappointing. We are making plans for the start of the new school year. School will open on Thursday 3rd September 2020 and we will have to make changes to the arrangements at the beginning and end of the day. Any updates will be sent by e mail and text. I will also put messages on this website page.
I hope all the children have a lovely summer and are refreshed and ready to learn when we return in September.
Thank you for all your kind messages of support and I can assure you that Mrs Spence and I will be getting a break and will not be in school every day during the summer holidays.
See you in September
Oldham free school meals – are you eligible?
Information for Oldham School Pupils
Oldham Council is urging families to check whether they are eligible for free school meals for the next academic year in September 2020.
The Coronavirus Pandemic has left many families with different financial situations than before. The worry is that more children will be left facing hunger and malnutrition because parents and guardians are struggling financially and aren’t aware of what they are eligible to claim.
Free school meal vouchers are now available over the summer school holidays and you’ll need to contact your local school by Friday 10 July 2020 to claim them.
You don’t need to make a separate claim for free school meals if you are already in receipt or have applied for Housing Benefit or help with your Council Tax. Oldham Council will use the information and evidence we have already provided to confirm your entitlement to free school meals.
If you live outside the borough (except Manchester) and your child goes to an Oldham school. Then you will need to apply through your local council in the area where you live.
If people are resident in Manchester but their child attends an Oldham school, please complete the Free School Meals application form.
