We have an inclusive eating timetable sharing facilities with the Brook children. We are very proud of our great tasting food which is freshly prepared on the premises each day. September 2014 onwards, the government has provided every child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 with a free hot meal each day which we strongly encourage you to take up. If you are entitled to free school meals because of certain other benefits you receive, you will need to fill out aFree School Meals form which enables the school to gain additional funds for your child.
