We are very proud of our school meal service, which is managed in house.  This allows us to directly control meal content and portion sizes.  Most of our dishes are prepared on site and we endeavour to use local produce suppliers.  Parents/carers are welcome to purchase a Golden Ticket to come into School and try one of our School Dinners with their child.  Please call the School office if you would like to arrange this.
School Meal Charges for 2019-2020

School Milk
School milk is available free for children under five and is subsidised thereafter, costing approximately £15 per term for over-fives.

Every pupil receives homework on a regular basis, beginning with reading and sounds work in Reception Class. Details of the amount and type of work to be set for each year group will be provided by the class teacher at the beginning of the year, in the Year Ahead information.

Please support your child in the completion of these tasks by providing them with a quiet place in which to work. If you have any queries about homework tasks, please speak to the class teacher.
