School Dinners

Each day our on-site catering team prepare a hot, balanced meal for our pupils which provides 2 of a child's 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. The menu has been analysed by a nutritionist and planned to provide the right level of nutrients that a child needs for a healthy diet. Most of the vegetables, salads, milk & potatoes that are used are produced locally and only free range eggs from local farms are used in the home made receipes. School dinners are currently £2.40 per day and payment should be made each Friday for the following week.

Medication

 

For some conditions we may agree to administer prescribed medication to a pupil, if prescribed. All medication must be handed by the parent to a member of staff.  it is the parent's responsibility to ensure that they collect the medication at the end of the school day.  A Medicine Consent form must be completed for each item of medication to be administered.

Holidays in Term Time

 

It is a legal requirement for parents/carers to obtain the permission of the Headteacher before removing their child from school, in order to take any leave during term-time.

 

Term-time leave application forms are available from the school office.

  • A meeting may be held with Headteacher to discuss proposed leave. 
  • The holiday form should be completed and returned to school for the Headteacher/Chair of Governor's consideration.
  • Form should be submitted well-in-advance of the proposed leave and before committing to any expense. 

 

Unauthorised leave taken during term-time could incur a Fixed Penalty Notice. 

 

Please note that school does not benefit financially in any way when penalties are applied.

 

Go to the Policies page to read our Attendance Policy and further information regarding Fixed Penalty Notices.
