Any term-time absence must be authorised by the Headteacher in advance - please be aware that applications will only be approved in exceptional circumstances. The application form is available from the school office.

Unauthorised absences are subject to action and fines from the local authority attendance team.

Lunch

All children will have the choice of a hot school dinner or bringing their own packed lunch. If you are providing a packed lunch for your child, it needs to be healthy, and include only 1 treat item (chocolate bar, crisps etc). Water is the only drink allowed in school - juice and fizzy drinks are not permitted. 

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club runs every day in the hall from 8am and costs £1 per child per day.
