Please see here for further information about our school Breakfast Club. 

Year 3 and Year 4 - 10.45am-11am
Year 5 and Year 6 - 11.00am-11.15am

During break time we run a ‘Healthy Snack Bar’ where children can buy low-cost healthy snacks such as crackers, fruit or milkshakes from the kitchen. Children can also bring in their own healthy snacks for break time.

During break time we run a rota for football and basketball, along with other games, to encourage our children to stay fit and active.

Year 3 and Year 4 - 11:45am-12:45pm
Year 5 and Year 6 - 12:15pm-1:15pm 

Children can choose to have a school meal or bring in a healthy packed lunch. During the summer children can eat their packed lunches outside on our picnic benches and mats.  

During lunch times we offer a variety of different activities to keep our children busy and active! The ‘Dinner Disco’ is always popular, as is football and basketball (which run on a rota), skipping, chalking and other activities run by our mid-day supervisors, Sports Leaders and PE apprentice. 


After School Clubs - 3:10pm – 4:15pm

We aim to offer a variety of after school clubs throughout the year. Some clubs we have run in the past are: Karate, craft club, boxercise, archery, dodgeball, film club and football.

We inform families of our after school clubs via the weekly newsletter and ParentMail.
