Medicine

If your child is on a prescribed course of medicine that needs to be taken during the day, you must speak to the Office and complete a form explaining the dosage and the time it is to be given.

Asthma inhalers should also be left in the office and the relevant form completed.

Lunchtime

Children can have a cooked school lunch or bring a packed lunch. School lunches are excellent and cooked on the premises – click here to find out more about our school meals and see our menu. There is no charge for a school lunch for Reception and KS1. The current cost for KS2 is £10.75 per week, (£2.15 per meal), which should be paid on Mondays for the forthcoming week at the Office. Parents on Income Support may be entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) for their child. We would ask that all eligible families should make a claim, even if they bring a packed lunch, as each child claiming a FSM brings much needed funds into school. The forms to claim for these are available from the Office — please ask if you are not sure. To support our Healthy Schools Award we would ask you to help us by not sending your child to school with chocolate, crisps, or fizzy drinks.
