As you are aware the government has decided to issue the school meal vouchers for over the six week summer holiday. Every child that is entitled to free school meals will be issued with a £90 voucher. However, the school have to order the school meal vouchers for this period by Thursday 9th July so if you feel you are eligible for free school meals please apply before this date. We will not be able to process any vouchers after that date for new claimants.
If you are already eligible for FSM, you will automatically receive a voucher during the holidays and you do not need to do anything further.

To all parents and carers associated with
Ad Astra Academy Trust
On behalf of the Trustees of Ad Astra Academy Trust I would just like to thank you for your support during this pandemic. You have had to balance child-care, home learning and for many of you, this has been alongside working from home. I have to say how impressed I have been with the amazing examples of home learning I have seen on social media.
Our Trustees confirmed today that for some year groups partial wider re-opening will start as planned on 8th June. I know your headteacher has already been in touch with you regarding which year groups start first.
One of our Trust values is ‘Togetherness’ and never has this been more evident in the collaborative work I have evidenced in the last few months. Ad Astra Academy Trust since the lockdown has seen over 2000 sessions accessed by children of key workers and those who are vulnerable.
I understand you will be very nervous about your child returning to school, but I can promise you the thought and planning that has gone into this has been incredible. The safety of our pupils and our staff is paramount. Each school is currently completing a detailed risk assessment. These will be shared with you on the school website prior to opening.
Once again, as we commence the final half term of the academy year, thank you for everything you have done and will continue to do, we will get through this together.
Andy Brown OBE
Chief Executive Officer
As you will have seen in the Government’s recent announcements, there will be a phased return to school for children who are in Year 6, Reception and Year 1. Tomorrow and Monday class teachers will contact you via telephone to discuss this with you further.
For parents/carers of those children who are not in the year groups outlined above, please rest assured that once there are plans for the return of children in Nursery and Years 2,3,4 and 5, school will contact you to discuss this.
Take care and Stay Safe.
