The school operates a Breakfast Club on the site which opens at 7:30am each morning. Places need to be booked via the School Office with sessions charged at £3.50.  This includes a wide range of breakfast from fruits, cereals, toast, bagels and cooked items including scrambled eggs, fried eggs and beans.

The school also has an After School Care facility.  This is provided by PT Childcare and operated in the school hall. Please visit www.ptchildcareclub.co.uk or ring 07790 607705 for more information. Children from Foundation Stage 1 to Year 6 are welcome at both facilities.

There is a morning break of fifteen minutes for all children in Years 1-6.  Pupils in Years 1 and 2 are provided with a piece of fruit on a daily basis.  This is part of a government scheme. Pupils in Key Stage 2 are encouraged to bring a piece of fruit from home to eat during the morning break.
 
The main gates at the front of school open at 8:50am with the main doors in to the classrooms opening at 8:55am.  Pupils do not need to arrive any earlier than this unless they are attending Breakfast Club.
 
Although we welcome regular contact with our parents we do hope to encourage independence from the children.  With this in mind we do encourage parents to bring the Foundation Stage 2 and Key Stage 1 children onto the playground and leave them in the charge of the member of staff on duty.  Key Stage 2 children should be able to come onto the playground unaccompanied. Our cloakrooms are very busy and we do aim to reduce congestion at the beginning and end of the day.

At the end of the school day, the teaching staff will be available to speak with parents.  Teachers accompany the pupils out of the main building.
