Packed Lunches

Packed lunches are kept out of the classrooms and are easy for your child to pick up when it's time for their lunch. We will always have a minimum of three midday supervisors on lunch duty to help out in any way and supervise the children when eating their lunch. Please can we ask that all drinks brought into school are in water tight, plastic bottles and we also suggest that children bring in a healthy packed lunch.
