Break and Lunch-time

Children are encouraged to bring a healthy snack for  break time such as a piece of fruit,  carrot or cherry tomatoes. The school provides a free healthy snack each day  for all children in EYFS and KS1.

Children may bring a packed lunch to school or may have a hot dinner from a choice of dishes. School dinners must be paid for in advance on Mondays.

You can find out more about the school meal service from the CCS School Meals website. On this site you will find information on current menus, nutritional content, local sourcing information and advice on special diets.

Money should be sent to your child's class teacher or paid directly to the school office  in an envelope clearly marked with the child's name and days requiring a lunchtime meal. Any parent who thinks that their child may be entitled to free meals should ask at the school office for an application form and to discuss in confidence or alternatively  see the website link .

School Closures

Any decision to close school due to weather conditions is taken only after consideration of the safety of pupils and staff both on the school site and in travelling to and from school. Should winter weather mean that school has no option but to close we will update the school answering machine and send a ParentMail message as early as possible and also put a notice on the entrance and inform local radio stations (BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, Heart FM).
