COVID-19 INFORMATION

In August 2020, the Government announced additional funding for schools to deliver Catch- Up funding following the COVID 19 lockdown measures.  The purpose of this report is to effectively plan the way the Catch-Up money will be spent over the coming year and enable us to inform Parents, Carers and Governors and the Local Authority of the impact it has on pupil achievement. The Catch Up Strategy Statement has been completed and can be accessed by the following link:

SUN PROTECTION

At Hornsea Burton Primary School we acknowledge the importance of sun protection and want staff and pupils to enjoy the sun safely. We will work with staff, pupils and parents to achieve this.  

Parents/carers can ensure that pupils are adequately protected by providing them with:

  • appropriate clothing, including hats, between April and September
  • an application of a long lasting high factor sunscreen (SPF 15+) before school, and at lunch-time if necessary

SLIP SLOP SLAP:  to SLIP ON A T-SHIRT, SLOP ON THE SUNCREEN, SLAP ON A HAT.

Teachers and other support staff are not legally obliged to administer sunscreens, therefore the support and co-operation of parents/carers is essential. Parents/carers have prime responsibility for their child’s health.

 

Dear Parent/Carers

Following the Department for Educations ‘Universal Infant Free School Meals’ initiative, from September 2014 all our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children will be eligible for a Free School meal.

We would ask that you encourage your child to take up the hot meal offer, but accept that some of you may prefer to provide a packed lunch for your child. A menu is available to you on the school website, www.hornseaburton.eriding.net, school notice board and sent home to help you make an informed choice.

If you have other children in Years 3 and above their meals provision has not changed.   These children will still be offered a free school lunch, but only if their parent/guardian is in receipt of welfare benefits. An application for free school meals is available from the Local Authority. For those children not eligible for a free meal in Years 3 and above, the price per day for a school meal will be £2.30.

 If you have any further questions regarding school meals or Pupil Premium funding then please don’t hesitate to contact the school office.
