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.
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 Junior 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. 


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 in School 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 use the Parentmail app.

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



If you are running late please take your child into school via the office. They will need to be signed in by an adult, lunch ordered and a reason given for lateness.



If you need to collect your child early for an appointment, please inform the office and provide a letter, appointment card etc. so a copy can be put in your child’s file.

Remember some learning takes place off site (beach/ swimming/sports events) Please try and book appointments outside of school hours if possible.
