Children are at school for 32.5 hours per week.

The children have morning breaks and may bring a healthy snack to eat during morning playtime - please remember that we are a nut free school. As part of our Healthy Schools Initiative a piece of fruit is provided for children in Foundation and Key Stage 1. Milk is provided free for the under 5s, and is available to purchase for all other children.

All children in Reception to Year 2 have an entitlement to a Universal Free School Meal - these must be ordered in advance via the school meals ordering site. Hot school meals are available to all children and are pre-ordered on-line. Alternatively, children may bring their own packed lunch. In the interest of safety the school does not permit hot drinks.  All children take lunch in the hall, under the supervision of school meals staff.

Parents/carers wishing to apply for free school meals should contact the school office for more information.
