Parent Reading Workshop

We invited our parents in to school for a reading workshop in March 2023. books

The purpose of the workshops was to

  • Develop an understanding of what reading looks like for your child 
  • Understand the importance of reading for children
  • Explore different methods for reading at home 
  • Learn the difference between reading skill and reading for pleasure
  • Ask questions about reading for your child

Please find the materials from the workshop below:

School Meals

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 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:


Our catering partner is Kingswood Catering. All meals need to be booked via their website: www.kingswoodcatering.co.uk Please see our guides below on how to register and book meals. If you need any support with this, you can contact Kingswood directly on 01536 201203 or email

Meals need to be ordered by midnight on Wednesday a week in advance. 

If your child requires a specialist medical diet, please contact Kingswood Catering directly. 


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.


Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP)

An EHC plan identifies a child's special educational needs, together with health and social care provision when these services are involved.

The focus of an EHC plan is on what is important for the child or young person - what they want to achieve now and in the future.​

Education, health and care (EHC) plans should be used to actively monitor children's and young people's progress towards their outcomes and longer term aspirations.

EHC plans must be reviewed by the local authority a minimum of every twelve months. These reviews must focus on the child and young person's progress towards achieving the outcomes specified in their plan. The review must also consider whether these outcomes and supporting targets remain appropriate.

A Parent/Carer Guide to the Annual Review

The purpose of an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) is to meet the special educational needs of a child or young person, to secure the best possible outcomes for them across education, health and social care, and as they get older, prepare them for adulthood. An important part of making sure that an EHCP does improve the outcomes for children with SEND is the Annual Review.
