Have your circumstances changed? You may be entitled to Free School Meals.

If your child is in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, they have automatically received school meals when they were in school this year, but now we are back to learning from home, you may need to apply for Free School Meals, in order to qualify for the food vouchers to use in supermarkets.

If your child is in Year 3,4, 5 or 6 and your situation has changed, you may also be able to receive Free School Meals for your child.

Have a look at the list below and  visit the DMBC website to apply if you are eligible.

The process is quick and you can find out straight away.

Please contact school if you need support in applying and we will be happy to help.

Christmas Whole School Assembly – 2020 style

Adapting and changing has been the norm in 2020 and no more so when it comes to assemblies in bubbles!

Well done Mrs Ogle for organising our end of year whole school quiz! I wonder which class will be the winner?


WWII: What is Doncaster’s story?


Our Year 5/6’s have been working extremely hard to produce a product on their latest Expedition- WWII: What is Doncaster’s story?

The children have engaged in standards based learning all linked to WWII and Doncaster! The children have produced a range of stunning postcards which have been put together by a professional graphic designer to sell to the public. Please watch our video and postcards are available to purchase from the office for £5 per pack. Monies raised will be put back into phase funds to support future Expeditions and trips!

Pride of Plover!

Well done to Rajitha for having a fabulous attitude to learning.  He has made great progress in reading, and although English work doesn’t come easy to him, he is working hard and getting smart.  He is a fabulous role model to our Crew!

Rajitha, we are proud of you!




Perfect Poetry!

Our Year 6 Crew have been poets today!  After writing  all about the polish aircraft that crash landed over Hatfield Moors in the style of a newspaper report, the children were challenged to describe the tradgey in a poem, using precise word choices to create impact.

A shout out goes to Mia and also Shang for using alliteration and personification in their writing.

Luke also gets a shout out for writing his poem in first person, as if he is the ghost telling the story.

Keep up the good work, Crew Chapman.
