The School Day

Students arrive by school transport or with parents between 9.10 – 9.15 a.m. and are greeted by friendly members of staff. They are accompanied to their classes for registration to take place.

Lunchtime is between 12.00 noon and 1.05 p.m. when students are provided with a hot meal, or have the option of a packed lunch in the dining room, if they prefer.

Transport/parents arrive at the end of the school day at 3.15 p.m to take students home.

Absence

Whenever a student is off school due to sickness, it is helpful if you phone the office to let us know. Alternatively, we require a short note on their return, stating why they were absent.

For other absences e.g. appointments, please give us advance notice where possible.

If you are not able to supply us with details of any absence, this results in an unauthorised absence, which may be investigated by the Educational Welfare Officer.  Please refer to the attendance policy.

When your holidays do not coincide with the school term dates, it is necessary for you to complete a Holiday Request form beforehand, to get permission from the Principal. Forms are available from the office or you can download the document.

Lunch Menus

Students have their lunch in the dining room, where we have two sittings; the first for our younger students (12.00-12.30pm) and the second for our older students (12.35-1.05pm).

Students can bring their own packed lunch, or eat school meals. We provide ‘family service’, so that members of each tutor group sit together with staff from their team. It’s the opportunity to not only eat, but to develop social skills.

Individual needs are catered for and staff are aware of students’ specific dietary requirements, where these apply.
The cost of lunch is £2.25 per day. Payment can either be made in advance for the week (£11.00) on a Monday morning or, if you would prefer, you can pay for the whole of the half-term in advance.

An administration charge of £2.00 will be made for each letter or telephone call the school has to generate to individual parents informing them of outstanding dinner money.

Payment for any meals that have been paid for and not taken due to your child being absent from school will be carried forward to the next week/half-term.

If you think your child is eligible for free school meals, please contact the school office.
