General Information

Each morning, our doors open at 8.45, and from this time the children are welcome to come and settle down to do their morning work, which will be laid out on their tables. Our day ends at 3.20.


Please could all children bring in a named water bottle to leave in the class during the day. They should only contain water - not juice. The children are free to drink from these when they need to, and we will take them to PE sessions.


In KS2 there is no funding for fruit and vegetables to be provided at break, so if children would like a piece of fruit or vegetable at break, they will need to bring some from home. They are welcome to eat this at break to tide them over until lunch.
