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:
Wistow Sausage roll or Cheese and Onion Pastry
Assorted vegetables and potatoes
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
