COPPERMILL PRIMARY SCHOOL

Family Support

We know that sometimes families are faced with unexpected difficulties during the school holiday, or when the school is closed. During these times families can contact the school on school@coppermill.waltham.sch.uk and we will get back to you within 48 hours.

Access to Food

If your child is eligible for free school meals and/or you are worried about having enough food during the school holidays, please speak to the school office team so that we can support you.  We will work with you to ensure that all support is discretely provided.  Our normal support for families in this situation is a referral to the local food bank.

If you require support from organisations offering food parcels, below is a list of some of the services and opening times for organisations opened locally:
