Telford & Wrekin are having a competition with some fabulous prizes 

At Lets Dine we are always working towards providing healthy meal choices, supporting the reduction of obesity in schools and supporting schools with their universal infant free school meal uptake as it’s a free meal. To promote this work we are launching a school meals competition. All pupils in Reception to Year 6 classes (key stage 1and 2 only) which are catered by Let's Dine are eligible to enter whether they are paid or free meals.

To enter the competition pupils will need to have a school meal (hot or cold) for 40 days between 13 January 2020 and 27 March 2020.

Prizes include:

  • 2 iPads
  • 2 family pantomime tickets
  • a family ice hockey ticket
  • a hamper
  • a skiing party ticket
  • a family foot golf/driving range ticket
  • 4 Sky Reach tickets
  • a book voucher
  • 2 Area 51 tickets.

Prizes will be randomly drawn. Winners will be invited to a prize drawing event where prizes will be drawn at random. The school where the lucky winner attends will receive a free Eatwell session (a session where 8 children prepare fresh ingredients, make a dish using those ingredients and eat what they have made).

Entries will be recorded and at the end of the competition, these names will be entered into a random name generator.


The first session was held last Monday and the children made some very nice Ham Parcels to take home and enjoy. There are still two places available per session so if your child would like to attend please contact Sarah on the details below.

A couple of school rules for those new parents joining our community and a reminder to the rest of the community. 

Safeguarding your children

If there is a change to the collection arrangements of your child at the end of the school day, then you must inform us via a telephone call to the school office or a message in the link books provided for such communication. 

Thank you

School Play Equipment and Areas

We appreciate that the pupils enjoy remaining on school property at the end of the school day but we would like to remind parents that pupils and siblings are not allowed to play on or around the play equipment including the traversing wall, tyre park or equipment in the barked areas.

This is because for insurance purposes children should only use school equipment when a teacher is present/supervising. We would request that you do not let younger siblings use it while they are waiting at the beginning of the end of the day. 

Dental / Medical appointments 

Where possible these appointments should be sought out of school hours, so as not to impede your child's learning, but if this is not possible then the appointment card or letter must be bought to the school office, so the correct absence code can be
