Please log on to ParentPay to book and pay for meals. Meals need to be ordered no later than Tuesday 12th July. Meal tickets will be issued for booked meals when you arrive for the family lunch.
If a BBQ isn’t your favourite then why not join in by bringing your own healthy packed lunch!
It will also be a chance for your children to share the work that they are doing in class and show you around school.
We apologise in advance for any queues that may build up. Our kitchen team try their best to serve up as quickly as they can!
Please do join us!
We are suffering ongoing issues with a few children who sneakily drop food under the tables at lunchtime.
Very often this food has hardly been touched e.g. whole apples and sandwiches.
Some children are throwing food under the table that has been supplied by home and other times it is food supplied by school.
It is really important to have conversations and better still get children involved in making their own packed lunches so that they have some control over what it is they will eat. Our teams try so hard to ensure that children are eating a good lunch so they have enough energy for their afternoon sessions.
I have asked our catering managers to come into school to see if they can do anything differently in order to prevent school food from being dropped on the floor.
We understand that some children are just so desperate to get outside to play that they rush their lunch. However, during assembly we will again be discussing the need to slow down and eat a good lunch.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Telford & Wrekin Council has launched a project to help residents feel safer in their homes and communities by reducing anti-social behaviour.
The Safer and Stronger Communities investment will address community priorities and create tangible measures to address them. The project also builds and supports both new and current initiatives, such as youth groups, community projects, activity and social groups and openings for volunteers to get involved.
In response to the Safer & Stronger questionnaire our school circulated, several concerns and suggestions have been addressed. Firstly, a new CCTV camera is being shortly installed which will monitor the Overdale MUGA and field area. The lighting on the MUGA has also now been repaired.
In regards activities for older children (11-16) several new free multi sports sessions will be offered during the summer school holidays – delivered in conjunction with AFC Telford. These free sessions will be on the 27th July, 8th August, 17th Aug and 31st Aug. All sessions will be from 3.30pm – 5.30pm.
The Safer, Stronger Communities team are officially launching in Overdale on the 25th June at the newly refurbished hall at the Carpenter Family Centre. They look forward to seeing you there.
Reception’s sport day is tomorrow starting at 9.00am. Please could all spectators wait outside the phase 3 gate (year 6 classrooms) once dropping children into school. A member of staff will meet you once everything is set up. Many thanks for your support.
