Parents are asked to pay dinner money for next week and any arrears on Monday morning. This will avoid us having to keep money in school over the holidays. Thank you.
Parents in the Nursery are asked to make sure that all supervision fees have been paid for the year before we finish school next week. Thank you.
The price of school meals will remain the same from September 2017. That is: £2.30 per day or £11.50 per week.
Children who are currently in Year 2 will no longer be entitled to free school meals under the Universal Free School meals initiative. From September 2017, children in Year 3 will have to pay for their school dinners.
Leadership for 2017/2018

Please note that no jewellery is allowed to be worn in school apart from plastic studs earrings. Thank you.
If your child suffers from asthma, please send in to class their inhaler labelled with a spacer. Please check the expiry date.
Requests for holiday
There has been an increase in the number of requests from families to take children out of school during term time. Due to recent court cases some parents are under the impression that is is OK to book holidays without seeking permission from the Headteacher of the school. This is incorrect. All requests need the authorisation of the Headteacher, prior to booking, and will always be discussed face-to-face to consider the exceptional circumstances. At Guardian Angels we have always listened to special requests so that a respectful partnership exists between the school and families.
If a family insists on not consulting respectfully with the school then the holiday will not be authorised, will be recorded on the child's record and may involve the child being taken off the school's roll.
