A message from the
What a busy week it has been! The children have
been preparing for their carnival today, look out for
the pictures on twitter!
Yesterday you should have received your child’s
report, if you have any comments or questions for
your child’s class teacher please speak to them at
the end of the school day or after school on
Wednesday 20th June.
Congratulations to Miss
Tinkler who got married this
week. She will return next
week and will be using her
married name Mrs Hardy.
Next week we will be issuing letters regarding the
arrangements for Friday afternoons from September
2016. Look out for them on ParentMail or in your
child’s school bag.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Thank you to our fabulous Friends of Great Denham
who organised the Summer Fete last weekend.
This week children in Year 2, 4 and 6 went on the
Faith Tour. They had an enjoyable and informative
NEW BOOKING SYSTEM
FOR DINNERS AND CLUBS
The School Meal Menu has been sent home today.
School Meals can now be booked online on our new
system, in addition to Breakfast and After School
If your child receives Free School Meals or is in
Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 (receiving Universal Free
School Meals), you will still need to complete your
meal choices online.
A letter was sent home recently with instructions on
how to set up your online account.
This week we welcome Kambi
to Delphinus class. I’m sure
all the children will make him
feel very welcome.
We have now installed a computer in the Office
reception area – this has been installed to enable
parents without a computer at home to use the new
booking system to book School Meals and Breakfast
and After School Clubs.
If you have any problems registering please contact
Claire Boyce in the Office who will be able to help.

When your child turns 5, you have the option to
pay for their milk to continue.
Additionally, parents of children in Year 1-6 can
