School Dinners

School Dinners

We have held the cost of the school meal at £2.30 for as long as possible, but in light of the rapidly increasing cost of food, electricity and other costs I am reluctantly having to raise the price to £2.50 per day with effect from 5th June 2023. This increase will bring our dinner price in line with what many other schools are already charging for school dinners.

We do ask that you continue to pay weekly, half-termly or termly, in advance via the School Gateway for the meals, whichever of those options suits you best. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will continue to be provided with a government subsidised free school meal every day.

If you think you might qualify for free school meals please visit:  even if your child is currently in YR, Y1 or Y2, as if you do qualify for income related free school meals, we may then be able to help you financially in other ways. Also, your child would then be eligible to free places available on the HAF  (Holiday Activities and Food) programme for children and young people aged four (reception class age) to 16, who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals, further details can be found on the link above.

Thank you for your continued support

Plea for Plastic Bottle Tops!

The Eco-club are working on a new project and would like plastic Bottle tops.

If you have any in your recycling please send them into school


Help Us to recycle old pens

We have started a box in school to collect used pens, felt-tip pens, highlighters, board markers and tippex. It is outside Tiger classroom.

The old writing instruments will be taken to Ryman’s in Shrewsbury and terra-cycled by BIC. The plastic will be re-purposed into litter bins, watering cans and seating.

You can bring in your old pens from home too!

Recycle your crisp packets here!

We are collecting empty crisp packets at school to raise money for the Shrewsbury Ark charity. When a certain weight is reached, they get sent to Walkers who then recycle them.

It would be great if you could send in your empty packets from home please.

Thumbnail for The Crisp Packet Recycling Scheme


Walkers® offers a simple and free crisp packet recycling scheme, which accepts all brands.

This is now the largest and fastest-growing scheme of its type in the UK, with more than 1,600 public drop-off locations nationwide. In fact, there is a public drop-off location within 4 miles of 80% of UK households.

Results from your environmental review – Mrs W

Thank you for completing the environmental review with your class. Now that we are all back in school, we can look at working on some of the areas you identified. I will summarise the results below.

These are the main issues that we can start to try and improve at our school:

too many devices are left on standby, like computer monitors, laptops and plugs;
we don’t use any renewable sources of energy, like solar or wind;
we don’t take part in any national energy saving initiatives.

we don’t ban straws, balloons or single use plastic at school.

we could make better use of the compost bins;
teachers use too much paper and laminate too much;
we could recycle much more of our rubbish.

Healthy Living:
we need to grow more of our own fruit and vegetables.

Do we encourage wild flowers, bees and insects? Do we have a wild flower area?

Which are the most important things to work on?
Have you got any ideas? Write them in the comments!

Anyone in the school can comment please and let the ECO-CHAMPIONS know!

Vote for the Eco-Champions badge

Well done to the eco-champions for working hard on a badge logo. Please could you comment below as to which badge design you think we should use for our new eco-champions to wear? Choose a number, or tell us a couple if you can’t decide! Thanks.

Children in Need -How to buy a duck

In each classroom, the school council / teachers have been put in charge of the duck race entry’s. If your child wishes to buy a duck, give the money (£2:00) to the teacher or school council and you can choose your desired duck.

Your child’s name will be put down underneath the duck and they will be handed a slip of paper with their duck on it.
They can buy a duck at break times and they are only permitted to buy one duck in total to ensure that everyone who wants one can have the chance. In larger classes, there are a maximum of 20 ducks to purchase, so first come, first served.
We hope that clarifies things,
Heidi and Amy
Student Council

Ariana how you can help

To help our world here are 3 steps :
Ride your bike to school instead of a car ?‍♀️?
Have quick showers to not waste water?
And pick up litter people have dropped?

Children In Need 2020 – Heidi and Amy – Student Council

On the 13th of November 2020, Myddle School are taking part in this years Children in Need (Pudsey Day.) Our theme is rainbow to thank the NHS for all their wonderful work through out this crazy year. We would like to mention that it is a £1:00 donation to come dressed up; make sure that you can do PE in these clothes.
Each year there is an annual duck race hosted by the BBC. Buy a duck for £2:00 and get the chance to win a box of sweets. There is a choice of 20 ducks, all based of famous characters eg: Leonardo da Swimci, James Pond, Hey Duckee and many more. One duck will win and who ever chose that particular duck will get a prize. There will be one winner from each class.
Good luck!
