Children are welcome to arrive at the school from 8.40am. School officially begins at 8.50am and our school day ends at 3.05pm.There is a morning break where the children are given fruit or vegetables. You may provide your own fruit or vegetables but not fruit bars or other snacks please. Parents can also purchase a third of a pint carton of milk each day for their child - this is free up until the child's fifth birthday. Lunch is from 12.05pm to 1.05pm and children are welcome to bring either a packed lunch or have a free hot school meal. Children should bring a named plastic bottle of water (not squash please) to school each day; research into brain function suggests drinking water aids learning and therefore children may drink water from their bottle at any time.
