Census Day Lunch 19.05.22

Next Thursday 19th May is Census Day. This is an important day for schools across the country as we have to submit data to the government. This data helps them to decide how much funding we should have next financial year.  

What is Census Day?

Thursday 19th May 2022 is Census Day. This is an important day for schools in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, and across the country as we have to submit data to the government. This data helps them to decide how much funding we should have next financial year. We are one of the lowest funded schools in Peterborough, and so we need to make sure we get as much funding as possible.

For every Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 child having a school meal on that day, the school receives a year’s worth of school meals funding, which is £465 per child. If your child misses the dinner on that day, we don’t receive the funding.

Census Day at OWPS

We would like each child to have a school dinner on this day if at all possible, as it would assist the school with gaining this important funding.

We have a delicious menu planned for Thursday 19th May:

Main course: 

Wistow Sausage roll or Cheese and Onion Pastry 

Assorted vegetables and potatoes 

Pudding: 

Chocolate Chip sponge and chocolate sauce or 

Angel delight or

Fresh fruit or yoghurt 

 

Simply top up the dinner money on Parentmail in advance.  Please contact the School Office on office@owps.org.uk or 01733 370646 if you have any questions or any concerns with the menu, and we will try to resolve them.

Thank you very much for your support.
