Pupil Premium Grant – what is it?
This is something that the school receives for any child whose parents are currently in receipt of any kind of benefits to support your child to achieve their potential in school and in their future life. It means the school gets money to help your child in school and can be worth thousands of pounds to the school – so we do encourage anyone who is in receipt of benefits to apply for it! The process is confidential and is very important for the school and for your child, so please don’t miss out if you think you are eligible. Find out more and apply by downloading the LCC Pupil Premium Grant Form and sending it in to the County Office.
Our Nursery operates from 8:00am until 5:00pm with core hours between 8:30am to 11:30am and 12:30pm to 3:30pm. Anything outside of core hours or above the current 15 hours free childcare must be paid for at a rate of £4.00 per hour. Booking can be done through the school office or through the Nursery Team.
Trumacar Tigers – find out more on the Tigers page or find out about our Tiger Cubs Pre-School
Our Tigers Before and After-School Care is an essential part of the school and operates from 7:45am until 8:45am each morning and from 3:00pm until 6:00pm each evening. The cost is £2.70 per hour or part thereof and can be booked in advance or on the day. All staff work for the school in other roles and therefore the children know them all very well and the team applies all of the school’s policies. For those who wish to claim support for childcare or wish to use vouchers, our OFSTED registration number is 119272.
You can pay for dinners, uniform, Tigers, Nursery, events etc at the school office or, if its more convenient for you, you can now pay online using a debit or credit card. If you want to use this facility then just pop into the office for a letter with your access codes on and then you’re up and running. You can keep a check on all of your bills and pay when its most convenient to you!
All infants (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are automatically signed up for the FREE School Meals when they start with us, so if you don;t want your child to have a FREE school meal then please let us know as soon as possible. All junior children are charged for their school meals, currently £2.40 per day. Children can have a school meal whenever they want to – even if its booking on the day – and parents will be charged for any meals taken by their child. All meals are prepared on-site and follow the Lancashire Catering Service healthy meals guidelines.
