A new ‘Free School Meals / Pupil Premium Service’ website, www.fsm.lgfl.net is now available. The website will enable parents/carers to quickly and easily check eligibility for free school meals. You will find out whether or not you are eligible straight away. If you are, not only will your child be entitled to a free school meal, but the school will also gain welcome additional funding for the school. This funding is known as ‘Pupil Premium’. You are not obliged to accept the free school meal for your child if you wish to make other arrangements, but we do want to encourage applications as the additional funding gained would still benefit education provision at the school.

On Friday, 17th October we went to the Kia Oval Cricket Ground to attend the School Travel Plan ceremony. Whilst we were there we took part in lots of different activities with loads of children from other schools, such as pedalling on a bike for 30 seconds. We got given beach balls to write on and then we threw them around the room for other children to write on. In the afternoon we went up and collected our second gold star for Dundonald. We had an amazing day!

At the Merton Schools Sports Partnership Autumn Conference, Dundonald was awarded the Gold Sportsmark for 2013/14 in recognition of our commitment to PE and sport in school. Congratulations to all children and staff for their hard work in making this possible.

UNICEF - Rights Respecting School - Recognition of Commitment
We are pleased to announce that Dundonald has been awarded with our 'Recognition of Commitment', which is the first step towards becoming a Rights Respecting School. All members of the school community have now been informed about the initiative and children and adults are continuing to learn about Rights and Responsibilities through lessons, assemblies and informal conversations. A random selection of children across the school were asked questions to assess their understanding about rights and responsibilities and the feedback showed good understanding across all year groups. The children in each class have contributed towards forming their own Class Charter, based on certain rights that they wanted to uphold.
