Census Day Lunch 07.10.21

Census Day takes place on Thursday 7th October and we would like as many children as possible to enjoy a hot dinner on that day.

What is Census Day?

Thursday 7th October 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 7th October:

Chicken Nuggets
Vegetable Nuggets

Hash Browns

Chocolate Sponge and Chocolate Sauce
Fromage Frais and Sponge Finger
Fresh Fruit or Yoghurt

Simply top-up the dinner money on Parentmail in advance.  Thank you very much for your support.

Please contact the School Office on or 01733 370646 if you have any questions or any concerns with the menu, and we will see if we can resolve them.
