Please note that caps and hoodies are not allowed to be worn in school and the only jewellery permitted is one pair of small earrings, a wristwatch, and one ring on each hand. Any other jewellery, such as large hooped earrings or multiple rings, will be confiscated. Other types of piercings are not allowed on Health and Safety grounds.
There is a cashless system in operation at the Kingsweston Centre. All pupils have a card (like a credit card) which is kept in the office. Lunch money should be sent into school with your child, preferably on a Monday. Cash needs to be in an envelope with the pupil’s name on it and cheques should be made payable to BAM FM, with the pupil’s name on the back. You can choose to pay weekly or send a cheque to cover a longer period. Payment is credited to the pupil’s card and the cost of lunch is deducted each day. There is no facility to use cash at the till. Parents must ensure that there is sufficient money to cover the price of meals.
Pupils entitled to free school meals have exactly the same card but the system registers that they have free meals. The free school meal allowance covers a main meal, drink and a pudding (a meal deal) or a Panini and a drink. If your child wants a Panini, drink and pudding, they will need to bring in an extra £1 to cover it.
A meal deal currently costs £2.40 per day or £12.00 per week. Please find a menu attached below.
