Currently we don't have any provision for meals in school. Pupil numbers dictated that buying into the meal service was far from cost effective and it was felt our funding could be used more efficiently for our children's learning. Our children all bring a packed lunch and we have a lovely social lunch time around the large table in the bigger classroom. Our numbers are growing however, so summer 2021 we plan to carry out a parent consultation about meals, to ascertain whether it will be viable to provide them again. We will be looking into the possibility of one of local community eateries providing a fresh meal on core days. Look out for the consultation later next year.
We have two providers for our school uniform. there are slight differences in what each company offer. Please feel free to make your own decisions regarding this. Uniform is ordered directly from the company, paid for online, and is delivered to your home. We ask that the children wear the school polo shirt and jumper, which can be our lovely hoodie. For trousers or skirts these can be dark/blue/black or grey in a comfortable style. We are happy to see the children in clothing they can be independent with, so if leggings or tidy joggers are helpful, then this is fine.
PE kit is a white t-shirt and black shorts please, with navy track suit bottoms for when the weather is chilly. These can all be ordered from the site and will be delivered directly to you at home.

Every Tuesday the children have their own enterprise activity; for 20p each child can buy a piece of toast at break time. We usually ask for £1 at a time to reduce how often we collect the money. The children keep account of the money and it is used as contributions to their chosen charity, and to buy those all important ice creams at the end of the year on our whole school trip!
