Support with food


Here at school we have a small “Pay as you feel” food pantry. Feel free to come along and take items you and your families need. Leaving a small donation will help us to keep re stocking our pantry so we can continue to support our families. Also , we welcome any tinned or packet food items that are in date.
Remember, you can contact school for me directly if you require further support .


The following places are available to support families with food. Please do not hesitate to contact any of them or us should the need arise.
