In the interests of safety, children, with the exception of those arriving on the bus, should not be on the school premises before 8.30 a.m. The school gates are only unlocked between the times of 8.30 a.m. and 8.55 a.m. and 3.00 p.m. and 3.30 p.m. If you and your child arrive late or you need to collect them earlier, you need to come to the main visitor entrance and inform the school office. Within the times that the school gates are open, parents can normally collect their children on the playground.

We are very fortunate to have a school kitchen on site. Meals are cooked in the school kitchen by Mrs Tomlin, Mrs Holland, Miss Steele ,Mrs Johnson and Mrs Edwards and cost £2.50 at present. It is a great help if money is brought on a Monday. Menus are posted monthly throughout school, kept in the office and posted on this website. There is a choice of either a main meal option, filled baked potato or a wrap. For menus, please see the parents section on this website.

We also offer Breakfast Club, one starting at 7.30am at the cost of £3.50 a day, and the other starting at 8am at the cost of £2.50 per day. 

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to the new Government initiative Universal Free School Meal Scheme. This means that if your child is of this age then they can have a hot school dinner for free.

Alternatively parents may provide their child with a packed lunch. Please ensure these and their contents are securely fastened. Due to some children in school suffering from food allergies we would ask you not to send your children with nuts or nut based food. Fizzy drinks also are not allowed. Please ensure that lunch boxes and all drinking containers (no glass or cans) are secure. Naming the sandwich boxes would be helpful for all pupils. Children who have a packed lunch should have a straw or suitable container to drink from. They should also bring spoons etc if needed. 

We are pleased to announce that we can now accept direct payments into the school kitchen account for lunches. 

Sort Code: 30-63-47
Account No: 24292060

We require child’s name and payment reference. Please could you email the kitchen at or send a note into the kitchen informing her of how much you have sent.
