Lunchtime arrangements
At lunchtime all children can have either a hot school lunch or bring a packed lunch from home. If you provide your child with a packed lunch, please ensure that it is nutritious and healthy.
We are currently reviewing our ‘Healthy School’ policies and will launch a Healthy Lunchbox competition, together with some guidelines very soon. In the meantime, the contents of lunch boxes are left to the discretion of parents (mid-day supervisors are aware). However, please be aware that this is with the exception of bananas at the infant site, as we have a child with an extreme banana allergy. Nuts and nut-based products are not allowed at infants or juniors, due to a number of children having severe nut allergies.
For break-time we would ask that the children bring in a piece of fruit or vegetable as this is consistent with snacks provided by the Government, for our infant children. We are currently reviewing the provision of tuck shop which includes surveying the children and we will let you know the results as soon as we have them.
                                                                                                                                                             

Attendance

Regular attendance at school is a legal requirement, it is your duty to ensure your children get to school everyday. We monitor all pupils lateness, absence and attendance levels. To be on time your child needs to be on the playground before the gates shut. Infant children must be accompanied by their parent or carer and walked to the school playground. If you need to go to the school office or have medicine to bring in, please drop your child at the playground or drop off zone first. Children should not be brought in through the main school entrance unless they are late.

Should your child be too ill to attend school their absence must be reported to the school, before registration, in the morning by telephone or email. Please leave a message on the telephone absence line or email: absence@peacehaven.e-sussex.sch.uk

Permission must be sought from the Headteacher for all absences other than illness. Please ask at the school office for an absence request form.
