Online Safety

While schools are closed to the majority of pupils and they are using online tools more to help their learning it is important to keep them safe online. There are a number of guides on our website to help parents with online safety. You can find them under Parents – E-safety for Parents / Carers. We have just added a new one from Thinkuknow on keeping your child safe online while they are off school.

If you have any concerns or questions please contact the IT team in school and we will do our best to help you.

Easter Stained glass

We’ve been busy at school this morning. Mr Cosgrove’s group have been writing some letters to Mrs Stott… I’m sure that she is looking forward to hearing their news!

With Miss Hall we have been creating ‘stained glass’ Easter decorations using our fine motor skills.

Free School Meal Hampers/Lunches clarification

We use the Leeds Catering Agency, to provide our school dinners. Since we have been closed, the Catering Agency have been working hard to provide those children eligible for Free School Meals, with a packed lunch each day.

This changed to a hamper, so that you only need to pick up on a Monday.

We have had some of you coming into school asking to collect the food boxes which we are giving out. 
Unfortunately, these are ONLY for children who are entitled to Free School Meals.
IF you, the parent, are on;

  • Income Support, or
  • income-based Job Seeker’s Allowance, or
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance, or 
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Universal Credit, with an income of less than £7,400 a year 
  • support under part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, or
  • Child Tax Credit, if you have an annual taxable income (as assessed by H M Revenue and Customs) which does not exceed £16,190

This will be something that you already  have in place through one of these benefits.

We have a list in school of all families who are eligible for Free School Meals and we can only give the boxes to these people. 
For the past couple of years in England, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have been given a meal in school which you do not pay for. ​This is referred to, by the Government, as Universal Free School Meals. So we can see the confusion! Food is not being provided for these children.
If you are not sure whether you are on our list, please email office@allertonceprimary.com and we can check, rather than you having a wasted journey coming to school.

Please don’t listen to rumours. Keep checking the website as we will update on there if there are any changes. 

Making Photograph Frames

Last week we enjoyed making our own photograph frame. After creating the frame, we designed it for someone close to us with a picture of ourselves inside and then had the challenge of designing a stand. Some of us thought we could send it to a relative who we may not see for a while.
