Dear parents and carers,
As you know, we work closely with the YMCA, North Shields to support our local
community at Whitehouse. During Half Term YMCA North Tyneside will be providing
activities and lunch for 15 children each day , who attend Whitehouse Primary
school. This is for pupils who are in receipt of Free School Meals and is free. This
support is unique to our school.
This will start on Monday the 26th and conclude on Friday the 30th of October. It will
take place in YMCA North Tyneside’s building in North Shields and will be Covid-19
Children will arrive around 11am and depart at 1.30pm. Typical activities will
include arts, crafts, fun quizzes etc.
The lunch will include a freshly prepared meal (which is individually portioned), a hot
or cold dessert, and each child will be offered a piece of fruit as a snack.
We need to know if your child has any specific dietary requirements including food
allergies/intolerances. The food is prepared in an onsite kitchen that is nut
free. Parents/carers may go off shopping or have a coffee in the YMCA café but must
collect their child promptly.
Please contact Darren on 0770 371 6006 to inform him if you wish to book a place for
your child- it can be for one day or the whole week, but it is a ‘first come, first served’
basis. Places must be booked no later than 2pm on Friday 23rd of October. You
must also inform Darren if your child has any dietary needs/allergies. If you do not
respond we will assume that your child has no dietary requirements.
This is a great offer and we hope to have a full uptake!
