Eco Warriors Tip

Today’s water-saving tip from Marcus, one of our Eco Warriors is: Wait until you have a full load before using your washing machine or your dishwasher. Some new washing machines use less than seven litres of water for each kilogramme of clothes, while modern dishwashers can us as little as 10 to 15 litres of water a cycle.


We’ve taken the @LetsGo_Zero pledge, joining UK schools who want to be #zerocarbon by 2030. We’re taking action now to reduce our carbon impact, helping combat #climatechange and safeguarding our planet for future generations. You can sign up too here:

School Lunches

Please see the new Spring 2022 Lunch menu below. Next week we will be on Week 3 of lunches.

Children can decide daily whether they are having a school dinner or packed lunch.

Please ensure you discuss the menu each day with your child so they can decide what they would like to order. Once they know their choices, they will choose this each morning with their teacher during registration.

Each day there are 4 choices, either the hot dinner, hot vegetarian option, jacket potato with a choice of toppings or a sandwich. The sandwich and jacket potato always come with a selection of vegetables/salad on the side and have the full pudding choice for that day.

Spring 2022 Lunch Menu

From w/c 4th January - w/c 4 April 2022 This is our new menu for the Spring Term

Application for Pupil Absence Form

This form should be completed by the parent/carer and returned to the school as far in advance as possible and preferably preferably with sufficient notice before the first intended day of absence.
