Morning break lasts 15 minutes and is usually between 10.am and 11.am. The lower school has an afternoon break at a time when the class teacher feels they need it.
Access to School
We ask that Parents/Carers don’t arrive on the playground before 8.45am ready for the doors to open at 8.45am.
The gates will be opened at 3pm please collect your children from their classroom doors.
The school is committed to encouraging a healthy lifestyle. We have regularly achieved the National Healthy Schools Status. School meals are cooked on the premises and are of a very high standard. Payment is made in advance, weekly on a Monday. Cash or cheques should be brought to school sealed in an envelope and marked with the child’s name, class and the amount contained.
If you wish your child to change from school dinners to packed lunches, then we ask for a half terms notice.
How much is a Primary school meal?
The current price of a school meal is £2.05 per day. School meal cheques should be made payable to Stockton Borough Council. Payments will also be able to be made through the School Gateway app from Spring 2021.
How can I see if I am eligible for Free School Meals?
The Free School Meal section is part of School Support and they can be contacted on 01642 526605. Children whose parents/carers receive Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance, or Child Tax Credit may be entitled to free school meals. Please contact the school office for the necessary forms and confidential advice.
My child needs a Special Diet, are you able to feed him/her?
Special diets can be catered for. Examples may include Diabetic, Coeliac and Low Fat diets. The Council now has a Peanut Allergy Policy in place. Please contact Caroline Ennion on 01642 780742 for more information.
Children may bring a packed lunch and a drink for their midday meal. Drinks should be brought in a plastic container or unbreakable plastic flask. Fizzy drinks, sweets or chocolate are not permitted and lunches should contain no nuts. Their lunch must be brought in a suitable lunch box, clearly labelled on the outside.
Water at School
Children are encouraged to bring bottles of water to school to drink throughout the day. Research has shown that this helps to keep the children more alert and focused during the school day. Bottles should be clearly marked with the child’s name and may be refilled in school.
