With questions on general knowledge and the local area, and a delicious ploughman’s supper included too, this joint event with East Harptree Pre-School proved a real winner with you all – and raised an amazing sum of £1584.00, to be split between our two pre-schools! Congratulations to all the teams that took part and thank you for your support.
The races are run, and the winners acknowledged, so all that is left is for us to say a massive THANK YOU to all of you who baked or bought cakes for our refreshments stall at the event this year, and the to the fantastic team of volunteers who gave up their time to sell, sell, sell on the day. Altogether we smashed last year’s fundraising total with a fantastic £1212.00 raised! A special word of thanks to the lovely team at Pullin’s Bakery, who once again donated over 300 cakes for our stall!
The Early Years Team at B&NES have asked us to tell you that the process for checking eligibility for two year old funding will be changing in July 2013 (to start in September 2013).
Parents will be able to self-refer by contacting the Free School Meals team on 01225 394317 and quoting your date of birth and national insurance number. You will then be told if you qualify for the funding. If eligible, you will be sent a letter with a unique reference number which you will need to bring in to show us to claim the funding.
We have copies of the self-referral information leaflet for families, which we hope explains the eligibility requirements. Please ask if you would like us to forward one to you.
