A healthy and well balanced two course dinner is available under the School Meals Scheme provided by Chartwells Catering at a charge which approximates to the cost of the food only. If parents wish, children may bring a packed lunch which they eat in their classrooms. No pupil is permitted to leave the school premises during the lunch hour unless parents make a prior arrangement.
Reports are sent out twice a year and, if it is thought desirable, weekly report cards may be used as a means of improving home links in some cases.
It is expected that in the case of absence that parents will notify the school as soon as possible. Since each absence must involve a setback, however small, parents are asked to note that absence from School for purely social or holiday reasons is discouraged because it is detrimental to a pupil's emotional and academic education.
