In line with national policy, all children in Reception and KS1 are eligible for free school meals; free school meals are also available to families in receipt of support payments or whose income is below a certain threshold. If you would like a confidential discussion to find out if you are eligible, please ask at the office.












Packed lunches  
Packed lunches should be brought to school in a named lunch box and they should be healthy and well‐balanced. They should not include sweets, chocolate, fizzy drinks or peanuts.
Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school, which is kept in the classroom for easy access.


We belong to the National Fruit Scheme and all children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and 2 are offered a piece of fruit every day. Children in Key Stage 2 are welcome to bring a piece of fruit for morning break.
We hold the Healthy Schools Award and strive to ensure that all pupils know how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
