Early Bird Breakfast Club
Breakfast club is run daily from 8am by Mrs Rooney and Miss Ineson. We currently hold breakfast club in the school hall where a selection of yummy toast, cereals and milk is on offer and lots of play can happen before the learning day begins.
We like to know the days your child/children are coming along to breakfast club by the Friday of the previous week so we can plan ahead.
Breakfast club costs £2 if your child would like breakfast or £1 if not.
If you're entitled to Free School Meals this cost is reduced to £1 if your child has breakfast or 50p if not.
Cookie (Mrs Blackburn) and her assistant Mrs Scott produce delicious, healthy, nutritional and well balanced meals which are cooked on the premises.
Ms McLeish joins the team as our lunchtime supervisor.
The cost of school meals are £2.20 per day / £11.00 per week.
You can apply for Free School Meals if your income is below a certain amount or you receive certain benefits, please ask Carly in the office for more details.
Please see our lunch menu in the document below.
Parents are welcome to visit school at any time. We value parental involvement, either in relation to their own child's education, or in relation to school activities and events in general.
The school has an active Parents', Teachers' and Friends Association (PTFA), of which every parent is automatically a member. Events organised by the PTFA include a Christmas and Summer Fair, Bingo nights and own clothes days. Money raised by the PTFA goes towards supporting the cost of various class and whole school trips, and to help purchase items for the children to use in school.
Parental feedback is extremely important to us here at Scremerston First School. We invite parents to give us feedback regarding all aspects of school life at any time they wish. A questionnaire was given to all parents in the summer term 2019 so that we could gather some general feedback about our school. Please see the results in the document below.
