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 and Sports Leaders.

After School Clubs - 3:15pm – 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.
