Thank you for all your support with this week’s Launch Days. I hope you agree that they were fantastically organised. The newly planted gardens look great, thank goodness for the rain to keep the plants well watered. These certainly help to improve the playground. Thank you to Homebase who provided some of the soil free of charge.

Dinner Money Debt
Before Easter the school underwent a financial audit. The auditors did not feel the school was doing enough to recover Dinner Money that was owed by some parents. The school is currently owed £1500. Essex County Council and the Government do not protect us from this and the money is taken away from vital resources your child needs. When setting the budget, I have had to reduce the amount of money we spend on the school library by half and also the amount of money we spend on resources by half. All because the school is owed £1500. Therefore, the Governing Body have agreed the following procedures for collecting money owed for school dinners.
- Step one– letter from Mrs Drew informing you that money is owed
If not repaid
- Step two– letter from Mrs Drew informing you that money is owed and stopping your child from having school dinners
If not repaid
- Step three– a meeting with me to discuss a payment plan
If not repaid
- Step four– an application will be made to the Small Claims Court to recover the debt
