All the staff at school are missing our families, so please keep in contact. We enjoy reading about what you have been doing and how you are getting on.
 
We will open again when it is safe to do so and when that day comes we will all truly appreciate being able to attend school and the importance of social contact.
 
The most important thing for now is to follow the government advice: Stay home, Save lives.

Families in Need
 
During this extremely challenging time, your financial circumstances may have changed. We work closely with our local foodbank which is based in Sawtry. If you require food to help feed your families, please contact Mrs Mulcrone via email on head@alconbury.cambs.sch.uk. This will be strictly confidential. At present they are operating on a delivery only service on a Friday afternoon.
 
If you think you may now qualify for free school meals due to your financial circumstances, you can apply online. The link is below. Despite the fact schools are closed, if you do qualify, we are able to send you supermarket vouchers instead of the hot dinner, your child would receive at school.
 
Please see the letter below from Cambridgeshire County Council about how to apply.
