Please note, supervision for children before the start of the school day commences at 8.45am. School therefore kindly asks parents and carers not to bring children onto school premises prior to 8.45am.


School Lunch

Universal Free School Meals were introduced for all children in Reception and Key Stage 1, which entitles them to a free school meal if they choose to. It is hoped that providing free meals for these children will improve their health and concentration in school, encourage a varied diet and improve their understanding of healthy eating. For KS2 children meals cost £2.81 per day (from Apr 2024) £14.05 per week. For Nursery children the cost of a meal is £3.37 per day


A REMINDER THAT WE NEED 3 WEEKS NOTICE FOR ANY CHANGES from packed lunch to school meals, or school meals to packed lunch.


To claim for a free school meal for your child, please contact the school office to complete an application form.


Packed Lunches

If you choose to give your child packed lunch, healthy eating guidelines are available in our school policies section. Please note; a minimum of 3 weeks notice is required to change meal patterns.
