Refreshments and meals
EC subsidised milk is available for all pupils in the school. The Reception class children receive free milk but once they reach their fifth birthday parents will need to pay 20p per cup should they wish their child to continue to receive milk each day. Parents of Reception class children who are paying are asked to send the correct amount of money at the beginning of each week in a marked envelope. For children in Years 1 to 6, milk is available to buy at morning break at a cost of 25p along with toast and other snacks at an equally reasonable rate.
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 (£10.50 per week, payable at the beginning of the week). All meals and milk are paid for via parentpay.
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.
Please can you ensure that all money is contained in a purse or envelope, marked with your child’s name. It helps us greatly if you are able to send the correct change as getting change can be difficult and time consuming.
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.
Dropping off and picking up
Our classes open at 9.00am although staff do come out onto the playground ten minutes before. We would ask you to make sure that you supervise your children until we blow the whistle for the children to line up.
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 text on the first day. If you have not done so it is our policy to contact you from 9.30am.
As a school we are very proud of our uniform and wear it with pride.
The Uniform consists of:
Bottle green V neck sweatshirt or,
Bottle green V neck cardigan,
White collared shirt if tie is to be worn (our preferred option and the most popular choice),
White polo shirt (with or without school badge) if a tie is not to be worn,
Green and yellow striped tie,
Black (preferred) or grey trousers or,
Black or grey skirt or a pinafore dress,
Green and yellow gingham summer dress if desired,
Black sensible shoes.
Yellow round neck T shirt with school badge,
A track suit for cold days (from Year 1)
Additionally, a popular choice is a black fleece or double fleece/waterproof with the school logo.
Labels and fabric pens can often be bought in school as part of our PTFA service.
For a charge of £1 per garment you can have your child’s initials put on any item. This is a very popular choice as it makes finding missing clothes much easier.
Uniform may be purchased from:
