Hopefully all the information you will ever need! For diary dates, please go to the latest newsletter.

Our school day

The school doors open at 08:50. We ask that children are not left at school unattended  before this time please. All children enter the school through the side door which can be accessed by following the path around the edge of the school building apart from children in the Starfish class, who enter their playground through the little wooden gate.

There is always an activity or task ready for the children to complete to help settle them and say goodbye to their carer quickly and quietly. This makes for a really positive start to the day for all involved!

Registration is at 09:05. Anyone coming into school beyond this time needs to enter the school via the front entrance so that their child can be signed in correctly. This is incredibly important to keep them and everyone else safe if there were an emergency.

School finishes at 15:30. The children are brought out by a class teacher or member of school staff and wait with the children until they can see who they are going home with. Children not collected within 10 minutes of the end of school sit in the school library until they can be collected. After 15 minutes, we will put them into After School Club for which there will be a small charge.

Don't forget to tell us if someone different is picking your child up!

Food and drink

We offer hot school meals which can be ordered in advance using the link to the side. Currently, ALL Reception and Key Stage 1 children (Reception, year 1 and year 2), are entitled to  free school meals. All meals need to be ordered via Local Food Links. When you join us, Local Food Links will send you a letter with an activation code. Use this on their website (https://my.localfoodlinks.org.uk/login)  to order your meals.   For those children who bring in a lunchbox, please note that we encourage a healthy, balanced meal and are a nut free school. We would also prefer it if chocolate bars were a biscuit or wafer type and no sweets please.The children have water cups and jugs on the table at lunch so it is not

necessary to send them in with a lunchtime drink.

All children need a named water bottle so that they can drink during the day. Please do not send in juice or squash.

KS1 children are also entitled to a daily fruit snack which we give out at morning play. Older children may bring if a fruit snack if they choose.
