At 8:45am the side gate is opened for children to come in to school - they go straight to their classrooms where their teachers are waiting to greet them. The children hang up their coats, store their lunchboxes, water bottles and Red Book Bags, and change their reading books if appropriate. Children should then be ready for Morning Registration at 9:00am. Afternoon Registration is at 1:00pm and the school day finishes at 3:00pm.
Lunch: All Key Stage One children are now entitled to a free school lunch. Since October 2015 we have been up and running with the free hot school lunches, or the children may bring packed lunches if they prefer. To support our Healthy Eating Policy, sweets are actively discouraged and we like the lunch to include fresh fruit and/or vegetables. A range of hot or cold meals are provided each week by AIP. Menus are sent out half termly.
School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme: At morning break each day, your child will be offered a free piece of fruit or vegetable, funded through the Government/NHS scheme. This is not meant to replace any fruit or vegetables you may wish to put in your child’s lunch box.
Milk can be ordered for your child to drink at morning break (one-third pint) at the current price (free of charge for the under 5s and Pupil Premium children).
Water Bottles: Research has shown how important it is for children to drink water throughout the school day, to improve concentration and thinking skills. It is best absorbed by the body when provided in frequent small amounts.
Every day children need to bring a clear plastic water bottle, clearly named and filled with ordinary tap water (squash or juice is not allowed). Bottles are then taken home each evening to be washed and refilled ready for the next day.
