Arriving at School

Please ensure that your child arrives on time and fully equipped for the day ahead. This includes any before or after school clubs that your child may attend.  Some of the items they need may include:-

  • Home packed lunch
  • Snack money
  • Permission slips from letters sent home
  • PE/Sports kit
  • Musical instrument
  • Book bag

Please ensure that all items being brought into school are clearly marked with your child’s name and class.

Please do not leave your child unattended on the school premises before the start of the school day.

Collecting from School

At the end of the school day the class teacher will wait at the classroom door with your child to ensure that they are taken home by a known adult.

It would be appreciated if your child is collected promptly at the end of the school day.  In the event of an appropriate adult not being present to collect your child then he/she will be taken to the school office and we will contact you.

School Lunches

Children have the choice to either bring a packed lunch to school or take advantage of a healthy school meal freshly prepared by catering staff on the school premises.  A choice of a hot meal or a packed lunch is available each day.  For more information on how to order school meals please click here.

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.

We also provide healthy snacks in Reception and participate in the ‘Free Fruit for Schools’ initiative for Reception to Year 2.

If you feel you may be eligible to claim free school meals please visit the Northamptonshire County Council website here.
