Free School Meals reminder

Please would parents apply for Free School Meals, if you think you may qualify (link below)

Even if you daughter / son brings a packed lunch to school there are many financial advantages if you qualify for Free School Meals, both for parents and for the School. It allows the school to be able to support your so daughter / son with the cost of resources or trips that take place during the school day.

Catering Update

If you son / daughter does qualify for Free School meals this is just a reminder that the free lunch can be: either the hot meal of the day ( either meat or vegetarian ) plus a hot pudding or piece of cake; or the cold meal deal of half a baguette and a piece of cake or fruit; or a pasta pot and a piece of cake or fruit.

The Free School lunch should be taken at lunch time, and any break time snacks paid for using the student's account.

If parents would particularly prefer their daughter / son to have their free lunch at break time, please speak to the catering manager and it can be arranged.

Dietary requirements

If your daughter / son has any kind of specific dietary requirement please ask them to speak to the Catering Manager to arrange for these requirements to be met, or speak to Mrs Woodcock in the first instance.

Careers Event

We are running a special careers event in the school on the afternoon of October 18th. If you are a former Ribston student (Alumnae!) or know any former student who would like to share their careers story we would love to hear from you. Please contact Mr Barnard for further details.
