As you know, some children are eligible for Free School Meals, depending upon a number of factors.

During this period of school closure, the provision of these lunches will continue for those families who let us know us that they wish to receive them, but as you would expect, this will be done in a different way.

As this may be a little confusing, just to clarify: all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are currently eligible for a daily school meal as part of the Government’s ‘Universal Infant Free School Meals’ initiative. This is different to ‘Free School Meals’.                        

Being in receipt of ‘Free School Meals’, also currently provides benefits for children when in school, and includes provision of lunch items during the school day (in term-time) during this period of closure due to the Coronavirus. To see if your child is eligible for ‘Free School Meals’ please click here and visit the 'School Dinners' section for more information. **If you have previously completed the application and your child currently receives Free School Meals (not solely as part of the 'Universal Infant Free School Meals' programme), then there is no need to reapply. one another.





In the light of recent advice from the Government of how to best reduce the risk of the spread of the Coronavirus, there is a slight change to plans from Monday 23rd March.

Those children of parents who have indicated that they are 'Key Workers' and that they absolutely need care in school for their child to enable them to continue their essential work, should now send children to their usual school - namely, St. Werburgh's, not Bishop Rawle C.E. (A) Primary as mentioned on Friday.

Apologies for this slight change, which has been made to reduce the risk to children, family members, staff and their families.

Just to reiterate, those children not being educated at home, should attend their usual school on Monday 23rd March.

Take care of yourself.

World Book Day Celebration at St. Werburgh's

Pupils and staff dressed up as book characters today to celebrate 'World Book Day' and a love of reading.

Characters from many different books came to school for the day and enjoyed reading as a class, and with a friend from a different class, with a theme of 'sharing a story'.

The event, which is aimed at sharing enjoyment of reading, was organised by the school librarians along with Miss Keeling (Professor McGonagall and our Trust Literacy Lead) and Mrs Hill (who leads the librarian team).

Children across the school had a lovely time reading books, talking about books, and dressing up as book characters.

Librarians, Zac and Angel, said, "We enjoyed organising the day because it was nice to dress-up and read books together."

Number Day for the NSPCC at St. Werburgh's

Children at St. Werburgh's C.E. (A) Primary have enjoyed a day focusing upon numbers to boost their Maths skills and raise money for a worthy cause.

Throughout the day, children took part in lots of different activities and even came to school dressed in a 'number theme' to fund-raise for the NSPCC.

Special assemblies were delivered by the NSPCC to our lovely children today, showing ways in which they can stay safe and confirming who to talk to if they feel worried.

The NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) delivered two assemblies: one for the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children; and one for our Key Stage 2 children, linked to their 'Speak Out Stay Safe' campaign.

The assemblies are part of our ongoing commitment to safeguard children and we were delighted to welcome Carol, Chris and Debbie to the hall and look forward to them re-joining us to deliver further workshops to Y5 and Y6. one another.
