Absence Reporting 
If your child is unwell or cannot attend school for any reason please could you let the school 
know as soon as possible on the first day of absence. This can be done by any of the following:- 
 
A telephone call on 01772 795415, a message can be left on the pupil absence reporting line 
A note with a brother or sister 
By fax on 01772 798455 or:- 
By e-mail to bursar@st-gregorys-rc.lancs.sch.uk 
We will attempt to contact you if your child is not in school and we have not had a reason for absence. 
 
 
Dinner Money 
Dinner money is collected on Monday mornings. The cost is £10.50 per week or £2.10 per 
day. Please could you send in the exact money, where possible, in a sealed envelope with 
your child's name, class and contents clearly marked. Cheques can be made payable to 
'Lancashire County Council'. 
 
Two weeks notice must be given when changing from packed lunch to a school dinner 
and vice-versa. Children can opt to stay for a school meal every day or on certain 
days of the week e.g. Monday, Wednesday & Friday, however, this must be a regular 
pattern and also requires a two week notice for any changes. 
 
No child will be refused a school dinner under 'exceptional circumstances'. Should 
a situation arise where your child requires a school meal for one particular day 
please contact the office. 
 
Thank you for your co-operation. 
Toast 
Children in KS2 have the choice whether they wish to have toast or not as a morning snack.  
The cost is £1 per week and should be sent in on a Monday with the exact change, where possible, in a sealed envelope with your child's name, class and contents clearly marked.  
KS1 children are provided with free fruit therefore toast is not offered to them. 
 
Toast money MUST BE SENT IN SEPARATELY from dinner money to avoid valuable 
teaching time being lost whilst trying to organise change. 
 
Thank you for your co-operation.
