Hot Dog Days

**Please book your Hot Dog days through ParentPay, especially KS1 pupils**

Hot Dog Days are usually held on the first Friday of the month. Dates are on the school calendar and are listed below. On this day, the School Association cook and serve hot dogs (meat or vegetarian) and cakes - normal hot school meals are not provided, the children can either have hot dogs or bring their own packed lunch. All profit from this event is for the school! It is a great fundraiser and the children really enjoy it!

Following discussions with the school we are implementing a maximum of 2 hot dogs and 2 cakes per person. If you feel your child needs more to eat than this they are welcome to bring additional items for lunch. Please send in exact money wherever possible.

Hot Dog Day Prices

  • KS1 get one free hot dog and one free cake as part of Universal Free School Meals
  • KS2 pay £1.50 for their first hot dog and 30p per cake
  • Everyone can pay 50p for extra hot dogs and 30p for extra cakes up to a maximum of 2 hot dogs & 2 cakes in total
  • Squash and water are free for all!!
  • Pupils in receipt of Free School Meals under the Pupil Premium scheme are entitled to free hot dogs and cakes
  • KS1 & KS2 children with a packed lunch are welcome to buy up to 2 cakes for 30p each

Children will need to bring money on the day in a named purse or sealed envelope. The teachers collect the money in at the start of the day and distribute it at lunch time. If your child has forgotten their money and has no packed lunch we will send home a note to let you know how much money is owed. Please send this in to the office.


KS1: It is vital that you remember to book Hot Dog Day online through ParentPay. This record ensures that the PTA/school is reimbursed for the children’s ‘free school meal’ by the Local Authority. Even if your child has no other hot meals at school, please log into ParentPay and book Hot Dog Day! Remember, children will need to bring additional cash into school if they would like an extra Hot Dog or cake. We receive no money for pupils who are eating a packed lunch but they are welcome to buy a cake for 30p

KS2: If you select ‘KS2 Hot Dog Day’ on ParentPay you will not be charged online, children still need to bring cash on the day.

We hope all the children enjoy Hot Dog Days! Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who volunteer their time to help run this great fundraising event every month!
