Refreshments and meals
EC subsidised milk is available for all pupils in Reception class, who will receive free milk until their fifth birthday. Once they reach 5 years old parents will need to pay 25p per carton should they wish their child to continue to receive milk each day. This money must be paid by ParentPay and there should be sufficient money on the account by the beginning of the school week.
Fruit or vegetables are provided during the day, by the National School Fruit Scheme, for all Reception and Key Stage I children.
Hot school meals are available at a cost of £2.30 per meal (£11.50 per week, payable at the beginning of the week). All meals are paid for via ParentPay. Please note that accounts must be kept in credit.
If preferred, your child(ren) can bring their own packed lunch. This should include a non fizzy drink in non breakable bottles.
During the day the children have access to drinking water. Please send into school a plastic water bottle labelled with your child’s name if you wish them to use the facility.
Most items can only be paid for by ParentPay. If your child does need to bring money for any reason please can you ensure that it is in a named purse/container. School cannot accept responsibility for money/valuables.
If you need to bring your child(ren) to school by car we ask that you do not drive onto or park on the school’s premises or on the road by the school’s entrances. We ask this for the safety of the children. There are car parks in the village, The West Car Park by the library and The East Car Park just past Uttoxeter Road entrance. Do not park on double yellow lines.
Dropping off and picking up
Our classes open at 9.00am although our doors are open from 8.50am and children can then come into school and go to their classes. All children should be in school by 9am.
At the end of the day we do not allow younger children to leave the building by themselves so please can you be on the playground and visible so that we can dismiss your child to you.
Please report any absence for any reason to the school office in person, telephone or by email on the first day. If you have not done so it is our policy to contact you from 9.30am.
