School Meal Information
Mrs Whitmore is our Catering Supervisor and she is helped by Mrs Kertolli, Mrs Blears and Mrs Burgess. Mrs Whitmore likes to dress up to serve our lunches so don't be surprised if you see her in witches costume or dressed as a minion!
If your child has a packed lunch from home please remember NUTS (tubs or packs in chocolate bars etc) are not permitted due to some children having serious nut allergies.

The midday supervisors support our children every lunch time. They help the younger children with their lunch and are available for the older children in the eating areas.
Once outside the midday supervisors are in each key stage. They have a daily schedule of activities and games. We have designated quiet areas so children may read. During the summer months we use the field. We have cricket, tennis, football but to name a few. We have benches around the field where children can relax and draw, read or just chat with their friends. During the rest of the time or when it’s too wet to use the field we have plenty of structured activities on the playgrounds and we are fortunate to have our new all-weather pitch which is really popular with the children!
