We also offer an after school ‘tea-timers’ facility from 3:30 to 5:30pm.

The children in Key Stage One have a weekly timetable that details the range of activities they will undertake each day, as well as the time of their morning and lunch time breaks.

A nutritious lunch is provided by our professional caterers, The Brookwood Partnership, for all of our classes.  The food is freshly prepared and cooked on site daily, with a range of options for children to choose from.  We have a no nut policy and can cater for specific dietary requirements.  The children have their lunch in the school hall with the Key Stage One teaching team, where they are supported with making healthy choices, developing table ma
