All children are encouraged to say goodbye to parents/carers at this point and any messages that need to be passed onto the class teacher can either be left with the staff member on the door or passed via the school office.

Our lunch break is one hour, running from 12noon – 1pm.

Norse supply our school dinners and they are transported from Porlingland everyday. There is no charge to Reception or Key Stage 1 for school dinners. The cost of a meal for Key Stage 2 children is £2.30 per day. Please see our ‘School Meals’ tab for further information and to view our current menu.
