Colleagues - can we get a big shout out to all the school office staff out there. They are currently the unsung heroes of our schools right now. Fielding phone calls, monitoring attendance & having to work like a medical call centre. It's a tough job & they do it well. Please RT https://t.co/VFZQng2ckf

Did you know that the most common sound in the English language is the schwa? This is the ‘uh’ sound in words like ‘cinema’ and ‘the.’ Interestingly, ‘schwa’ is a German word but meaning comes from a Hebrew word meaning ‘emptiness’ as if the sound isn’t there at all.

RIP Chadwick Boseman. Thank you for all the amazing films and good works. And thank you for Black Panther, which made the adult me smile and the child in me rejoice because - at last. Rest in eternal peace and power. 😔 https://t.co/aeQh4iaE7J

Sadly this was my wedding ring & bag that was stolen. I’m sure I won’t see them again, but I’d really like it if he didn’t have the opportunity to steal yours. Please have a good look at the picture & if you recognise him call 101 ref 6195/21aug Dx https://t.co/esifysCOTM

School Meals and Milk

Both myself and Michelle came away from our visit last week wishing every primary school lunch service was like the one we witnessed at Magna Carta. The quality of food, the communication with the pupils and the overall dining room environment is so positive, well done you.  Jill Taylor, LBA Safety

Free School Meals

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit

Children who get any of the above benefits in their own right (ie they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get free school meals.

To apply for free school meals Please visit https://www.essex.gov.uk/free-school-meals

 

Universal Infant Free School Meals

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to receive a free school meal, regardless of income, in line with the Government’s Universal Infant Free School Meals initiative. There is no need to make an application to the Local Authority for parents of these children.

Therefore you should only apply for free school meals in the July of the year that your child is entering Year 3, or if your child is Year 4 or older if you believe you meet the low income eligibility criteria.
 

Milk

Milk is offered during the morning session to all pupils under five years old, and pupils entitled to free school meals, free of charge.  Parents of all other pupils are offered to opportunity to purchase milk for their child through our milk provider, Cool Milk.  Further information can be found here.


 

Meat Free Mondays

Our catering manager cooks a range of meals throughout the year, many of which include meat. In response to one of our parent's suggestions, we have embraced Meat Free Mondays. For more information about why we subscribe to this, go to https://www.meatfreemondays.com/schools/.

The following is taken from the Meat Free Mondays website:

Many of the world’s leading health organisations now encourage a reduction in the amount of meat people consume. In 2010, a study carried out by Oxford University’s department of public health found that eating meat no more than three times a week could prevent 31,000 deaths from heart disease, 9,000 deaths from cancer and 5,000 deaths from stroke, as well as save the NHS £1.2 billion in costs each year. Former chief scientific officer Sir Liam Donaldson has said that reducing the UK’s consumption of animal products by 30% [by 2030] would prevent 18,000 premature deaths every year.
