All children have a morning break and Key Stage 1 children enjoy an afternoon break also. Lunch is for an hour and is staggered to for different key stages. A morning snack of fruit and/or vegetables is provided for children until they reach the end of Year 2. From Year 3, children are asked to bring in their own healthy morning snack.
There are three assemblies every week with the whole school joining together every Monday. On a Wednesday, we celebrate in the children's achievements where chilren are awarded Happy Grams, and certificates and medals from things they have achieved outside of school. Every Friday morning there are class assemblies, to which parents are invited. Please see the diary dates for when your child's class assembly might be.
