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, hot sauce (spicy) and due to allergies we cannot have anything with nuts brought into the school ie peanut butter or cereal bars contaiing nuts.
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.
