Please try hard to get your child to school on time and to collect them promptly.

Playtime and Dinnertime
There are two playtimes for Year 2, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. During the morning playtime the children can buy a slice of toast for 20p. The pieces of toast are limited to one per child and the children are responsible for their own money. Please try to send in the correct change
Lunch time is from 12:20pm until 1pm where the children will eat their packed lunch or a school dinner in the dinner hall with the other children. Please remember that year 2 are eligible for ‘Free School Meals’. Please note that ‘Universal Free School Meals’ stop at the end of Year 2.
Once your child has finished their lunch, they will get the opportunity to play with their friends on the KS1 playground. Throughout the week, the children will get the chance to play on the trim tail which is on the field on the KS2 playground.
