We offer fresh, tasty meals, prepared on site by our Catering team. The menus are changed half termly, and lunch choices should be booked via the School Gateway system.
Children in Years R to 2 are entitled to a free meals under the Universal Infant Free School Meals initiative.
We use an online payment system called SchoolComms so that parents can book and pay for school meals, wraparound care, extra curricular clubs and miscellaneous items such as bookbags, trips and sunhats. For more information, click here.
We are excited to announce that we have teamed up with Stikins to offer parents the opportunity to purchase quality labels for your children’s school uniform, whilst earning the school commission at the same time! This money can then be used to continue to help purchase some of the fantastic resources that benefit our children’s learning.
As we all know, lost property is a problem in all schools and we are all familiar with our child, at some point, coming home from school with a missing item. As parents, we are aware that time is precious, which is why we think these labels are such a great idea; they simply stick onto the wash-care label of clothing. They can even be used in shoes! Naming of clothing is a school requirement and we are hoping that with this opportunity we can start to eliminate some of parents’ frustrations that surround these issues.
How it works:
Each order placed quoting the school reference number 36271 will provide the school with 30% commission.

Trips and Visits
We believe in enriching the curriculum and providing as many opportunities as we can for children to learn and grow outside of the classroom.
We aim to provide frequent opportunities for the children to learn about the immediate area in which they live (Newton Leys Development) as well as experiencing teaching and learning in the school grounds. We often take groups of children on local adventures such as trips to collect leaves, class trips to the shops or even to help Red Riding Hood to search for the "Big Bad Wolf"!
In addition to the above, each year group will enjoy class visits to support their curriculum once a year. We ask parents for donations of approximately £20 towards these trips.
As the school grows, we also plan to offer the opportunity for our children to enjoy residential trips, as follows:
Year 2 - one night camp in the school grounds (approximate cost £10)
Year 4 - three day residential at a UK based activity centre (approximate cost £200)
Year 6 - 5 day trip (approximate cost £350)
Residential trips will only proceed if there is enough support from parents and children to make them worthwhile.
