Industrial Action

I'm sure you are aware teachers' unions are planning to take industrial action this month.  This is a dispute between teacher unions and the employers, it is not a dispute with the school.  The majority of teachers belong to either INTO or NASUWT unions.  The planned Industrial Action is as follows


  • Tuesday 31st January - NASUWT members are striking for the full day.


If your child's teacher is on strike, do not send your child to school.  All parents will receive individual letters a minimum of one week before strike action letting you know specific arrangements.  Thank you.

 

Reminder:  It is extremely important that all families have updated any new mobile phone numbers with the school office to ensure that they are receiving all text messages, especially throughout the winter for any adverse weather closures.  If you have not received a test message from St. Anne's since the New Year please ensure that your mobile number is checked/updat3ed at the office as soon as possible.  Out texting service is an extremely caluable communication tool with all families and your co-operation is gratefully appreciated.

Health Promotion  -  Primary 3 - Primary 7

To ensure children have a healthy break St. Anne’s subsidise milk and fruit.  As a health promoting school only water/milk or fruit may be taken at breaktime. 

 

Milk:   Primary 3 - 7 will cost £28 for the year £12 1st Term, £10 2nd Term, £6 3rd term.  This must be paid for before milk can be ordered.  Milk will begin on Monday 19th  September.  Primary 1 - 2 Snack costs £10 a term (For both fruit & Milk).

 

Fruit:  Primary 3 - 7 Fruit will begin on Monday 19th September and costs £18 per year.  £6 per term.  Children receive a banana, orange or apple each day.  Money should be sent into the class teacher.

 

Free School Meals:  If your child is entitled to free school meals and you have not applied you would need to do so as the school can only issue tickets to children  on the WELB list.  If you need an application form please collect one at the school office.  Paying dinners at the canteen will cost £2.55 for pupils this year.

 

Breakfast Club


Breakfast club will be available from 8.00 a.m. Primary 4 - Primary 7 children will be on the playground (if dry) / assembly hall (if wet) from 8.30 a.m.



8.00 a.m. - 8.50 a.m. each day
Everyone attending the breakfast club receives a ticket worth 25p This means that any of the 50p specials below only cost 25p Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it is the first meal eaten after an all night fast. It provides the body with energy for the day ahead. Research shows that children who skip breakfast do not perform so well at school. Parents should encourage children to have an adequate breakfast in the morning. Suitable breakfasts are – breakfast cereals (preferably wholegrain, with no sugar added), boiled egg and toast, baked beans and toast etc. Alternatively you might like to encourage your child to come along to our Breakfast Club: This has proved to be very successful. If your child misses his/her breakfast at home send him/her to the Breakfast Club. Breakfast Club is not only for children. Everyone is Welcome!
