Lunch Service: Sodexo

As previously communicated the main cafeteria is not accepting cash payments, but the DCIS Café will continue to accept cash. Although, the cash facility in the DCIS Café is really designed to accommodate parents for occasional use, we recommend that all students are signed up for a Campus Online account. This limits cash on site and allows parents to track purchases that students make during the day through their Campus Online accounts. You can access the Campus Online page at this link.

Global Goals Resource Centre

Have a great week everyone. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have, and keep in contact! We love to see and hear what you have been up to with the Global Campus.

Parent Support Network

We are pleased to launch the first Parent Support Network meeting. This is a chance to meet up with other parents informally over a coffee and share experiences and support amongst friends.  We're facilitating the first of these meetings, providing a space for parents to meet and will be inviting along a child psychologist to offer advice about any issues that may be concerning parents with their own children, outside of school.  The network is independent of the school and open up to all parents of children with additional needs. The first network meeting will be held on Monday 26th February at 8:45am in the DCIS cafe.  We hope you can come along.
