School dinners

These have gone up in price from £2.20 to £2.30. Please also bear in mind that if your child has moved up from Year 2 to Year 3, and they have been having universal free school meals you will need to start paying for school dinners. You can pay online through Parentmail (preferred) or by cash/cheque/card in the school office.

Social Media

You should have received a letter regarding permission for your child to appear on the new Manor Green Primary School social media pages that have now gone live. If you haven’t already done so, please complete and return the slip. Facebook and Twitter details below.
