Our branded school uniform is optional and not compulsory, however you are able to order uniform with the school logo from My Clothing:
Please do not worry if the website doesn't show the correct school logo - it is correct upon manufacture.
If your child is unable to wear our school uniform, we encourage our families to ensure their child is dressed in clothes that promote independance.

At lunchtime, children have the choice to either bring a packed lunch to school or take advantage of a healthy school meal freshly prepared by our own catering staff on the school premises. We are able to cater for all dietary needs and our staff are trained to support children who require different feeding methods or who experience difficulty in eating and swallowing.
All children in Key Stage 1 (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.
Some children may also be eligible for Free School Meals which will entitle the school to receive Pupil Premium funding.
Please read our information leaflet about Free School Meals:
All meals need to be ordered online via Parent Pay: https://www.parentpay.com/. If you have any issues with the booking system you can contact Parent Pay online via this website.
Our school meals provider is Chartwells, you can find more information on their website https://loveschoolmeals.co.uk
Chartwells have asked that parents order meals by 8am on the day the meal is needed.
We participate in the ‘Free Fruit for Schools’ initiative which provides a healthy snack for children in Reception to Year 2.
We ask parents to provide their child with a healthy snack to bring to school each day.
Free School Milk
Childen in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitiled to free school milk. This is offered in school at snack times. School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.
