Free School Meals Update

If you have any questions about free school meal vouchers or you are having trouble accessing the vouchers sent to you, please contact support@wernethprimary.org.uk.  

I have been made aware of some ‘scams’ regarding free school meals where fraudsters are targeting families by text or email and asking them for their bank details so that school can make a transfer of funds to them.  Please delete any such messages as they are fake.

Community Helpline to support Oldham Residents:  0161 770 7007

School Provision

In line with Government guidance, we are continuing to provide support and provision for vulnerable pupils and those whose parents are identified as key workers.  This is an offer to parents and carers and there is no requirement for them to send their children to school.  Many parents working in these critical sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home.  Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. 

From Monday 23rd March 2020, the provision for Werneth pupils will be based at The Hathershaw College.  The pupils will continue to be supported by Werneth staff at this site.

If you think that your child requires this provision, please contact school either by email or phone at least 24 hours (where possible) before this provision is needed to ensure that staffing can be arranged.

Email:  support@wernethprimary.org.uk

Phone:  07593439247 (between the hours of 7am and 5pm)

Many thanks for your ongoing support.
