Classes

  • We are a two-form entry primary academy so we have two classes in every year group.
  • In total there will be 350 places available to children in the local community.

Wrap around care

As part of our extended services we provide wrap around care which includes:

  • 8.00am–8.50am: Breakfast Club/before school club
  • 3.15pm–4.30pm: after school clubs run by teachers – please see termly newsletters to sign up

School times/sessions

  • Doors open to the academy at 8.40am for children to do responding to marking, registration opens at 8.50am.
  • Every child has an hour for lunchtime.
  • The school day ends at 3.15pm.

FREE Meals

All children that are in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 (Key Stage 1) are entitled to receive FREE SCHOOL MEALS!

We think it’s a fantastic idea so please make sure you get on board and support this initiative. Not only will you be saving money, but you will also be giving your child a nutritionally balanced meal to fuel their bodies for the rest of their learning day.

If your child is in Key Stage 2, our meals are still great value for money so please, if your child is not trying them now, give them a go.

Aspens are our catering provider and Tracey is our head chef. For more information about Aspens, our food and services, how we purchase our food and our contribution to the environment, please have a look around their website. 

The termly menu can be found on our Facebook page and Parentpay webpage where you will book your child’s meals.

If you have any questions please let the office know.
