Half-Term Free School Meals Food

Important Information for parents of children entitled to free schools meals

Medway Council have just announced the following arrangements:

Medway Citizen’s Advice Bureau (CAB) is working with Medway Council to provide food during the half-term period for the parents of children entitled to free schools meals. 

The scheme will comprise food or vouchers. CAB staff and volunteers will check for allergies and will try to have a healthy balance within the budget for each child.  The scheme will be from Monday to Friday (26 October to 30 October) and will consist of a lunch or vouchers. The lunch packages might contain cereal too, if possible.

Eligible parents should contact Medway CAB by email - schoolmeals@medwayadvice.org.uk or phone - 01634 383760.  Parents should have available a certificate of eligibility, which they should provide to the CAB staff member or volunteer at the food / voucher collection centre or at their door if the food or vouchers are delivered to then.  However, we are aware that some parents won’t have this to hand, so CAB will accept evidence of:

·        Income Support

·        income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

·        income-related Employment and Support Allowance

·        support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

·        the guaranteed element of Pension Credit

We would like to share with you the thoughts of some of our parents

“I am so glad I chose St Peter’s for my little girl. As a 30th August baby, I was nervous about how she would settle but we had no problems and she is doing so well. It is such a nurturing place and feels like a village school in the middle of town! Even the head and deputy head knew her name within the first week, greeting us even now at the gates every day come rain or shine, and I feel so comfortable leaving her knowing she is so at home and cared for. She has loved her time there so far and is excited every day for what they have planned for her next. I have no doubt that this is the best start to her education that she could have had. Thank you St Peter’s!” (BH)

“St Peters is a fantastic school. It’s small and intimate and has some of the loveliest teachers. My daughter is thriving and I couldn’t recommend St Peters enough. My daughter loves going to St Peters every day.” (JH)

"St. Peters is a real gem! It’s a caring, nurturing environment with the loveliest of staff/teachers, who give so much attention to all the children.

I was a nervous for my 4yr old bilingual daughter, starting school last year, but from the first days I realised that she is in the best possible hands! Year 1, now, she is thriving and simply adores her school!" (MM)

    Keeping warm!
    Dear parents Due to Covid-19 we are having to keep the school building well ventilated, which means doors are open all day. This is making the classrooms quite chilly. We would like to suggest that children wear a number of layers to school to help keep them warm. They will still need to be in uniform but we suggest for example to wear a vest or a roll neck top etc under their normal uniform, and we suggest girls wear warm tights rather than socks. Please can we also stress that ALL school jumpers MUST be name labelled. As children warm up at points of the day, they might remove their top layer and if the jumpers are un-named, it will be very tricky to re-unite your child with it. Thanks

About St Peter's Infants School

St Peter’s is a very friendly, supportive and nurturing school, where all members of the school community work as a team to make the time that the children spend with us positive and remembered fondly. We have high expectations for the children in our care, not only for academic success but in all aspects of their personal achievement. We firmly believe that children learn best and are most positive about their school experiences when they have high self-esteem, self worth and respect for others.

We aim to nurture the whole child and encourage them to work to the best of their ability in all aspects of school life - academically, socially and emotionally - thus equipping them to be valuable citizens of the future. St Peter’s aims to provide a broad, high quality education that helps the children develop into independent young people, able to apply their skills and knowledge to whatever lies ahead. We aim to develop in our children an enthusiasm for learning and positive attitudes that will enhance their self-esteem and that they will carry on with them into adulthood.

St. Peter’s has a strong philosophy of team work that is extended out to home. We seek to foster a strong home/school partnership that helps to build upon and consolidate the unique set of experiences that your child will bring to school.

We trust that you will find the information you require on our website and more.

St Peter’s is a GOOD School!

We are pleased to confirm that St Peter’s continues to be a GOOD school. 

It reflects the care, commitment, dedication and hard work of everyone (staff, children, Parents, Governors) that makes St Peter’s the great and unique school that it is.

 We are very proud of our school and are so pleased that Ofsted recognised the positive learning culture within it and that our pupils are well cared for and love to learn.
