Year 3 parents:  At the end of last term we sent home details of your Parent Pay login so that you can pay for your child’s school meals.  Several parents have asked about how they can pay.  Please read the letter that your child brought home and then see Mrs. Nassar or Mrs. M. at the office. You can also email them for advice on admin@greendragon.housnlow.sch.uk.  Please make sure you have checked whether you are entitled to free school meals – Green Dragon gets extra money for all children who are entitled to free meals – http://www.hounslow.gov.uk/free_school_meals
