Start & end of day



It is important that your child is on time and ready to learn.

Children are welcomed by staff at our Early Years gates from 8.45am (on Clydesdale). If you and your child arrive after 9am, please use the main school entrance on Wyedale, as the gates to Early Years will have been locked. Your child will need to be signed in and will be recorded as late.

Our school day finishes at 3pm. Please collect your child at the Early Years gate at this time.

It is important that you do not park on the safety zigzag markings outside the school, and we ask that you are considerate when parking on the road, to avoid blocking residents’ driveways.

Each morning the children are provided with a healthy snack. The cost amounts to 20p per day, however, we ask for payment to be made in four instalments of £10 payable at the start of the Autumn and Spring half terms (£40 in total.)

Every child in Early Years and Key Stage 1 is also given a free piece of fruit each day. Therefore, they do not need to bring in a snack from home.

Water & milk

Please ensure your child brings a refillable water bottle to school with them each day. The bottle should be clearly marked with their name and brought home each evening to be washed and refilled with WATER only.


There is also the opportunity for children to have milk in school. It is free for those children under 5 and those eligible for Pupil Premium (Pupil Premium are those children who parents have applied for and received Free School Meals).

You will need to register your child at, where you will be able to manage your account and choose whether to pay weekly or termly.

School lunches

Whilst your child is in Early Years and Key Stage 1 (Year 1 & 2) they are eligible for the Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM) and therefore do not need to pay for a school meal. 

Every morning, the children are able to choose between the following options which come with a portion of salad or vegetables...

  1. Hot dinner
  2. Jacket potato with a range of fillings
  3. Hot panini
  4. Deli bar (cold sandwich or wrap)

On Friday there is the choice between Pizza or Fish & Chips - this day is always a firm favourite with children (and staff!)


Your child also has the option to bring their own packed lunch. As a Healthy Eating School we request that these should be made up of healthy foods, e.g. sandwich, fruit, a small biscuit or cereal bar. WE ARE A NUT FREE SCHOOL.

If your child has any dietary requirements, you are able to talk to the school cook about these, again through making an appointment at the office.

Homework & Reading books

Please ensure that your child's reading book is in their book bag EVERY DAY as we will often read with children throughout the school day. Reading books are changed every Friday.

Homework is set every Friday and is due in on the following TUESDAY. This is so that it can be marked and the new homework stuck in ready for the Friday. Please note that late homework which is not in school on the Tuesday may not be marked.

Thank you for your continued support with this.
