Drop-off & Collection

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are asked to bring/collect their children to/from the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.

Morning Playtimes

A healthy morning snack aids learning. Children can bring in snacks to eat at break time (no sweets or chocolate please). As a no-nut school, it is essential snacks are nut-free.


Children have the choice of a school meal or bringing in a packed lunch. Children have three school lunches to choose from each day.

Daily Mile

The afternoon sessions are separated by the classes taking part in the daily mile around our school field.
