3. What do the children have for lunch?

We have Norse Catering to make our food. The children can have a school packed lunch, a jacket potato option, a meat main course or a vegetarian main course. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 get universal free school meals. Families can apply for means-tested free school meals. Click here to find out more.

Children can also bring in a home packed lunch. We encourage families to ensure this is a healthy lunch including sandwiches/pasta, fruit and a drink.


4. How do you teach reading?

We start the children's journey to reading by using Little Wandle Letters and Sounds. This is a synthetic phonics programme. Click here to find out more. As part of this programme, the children read 3 times weekly with a group and an adult.

As children complete the phonics programme, they move onto Accelerated Reader. Click here to find out more. Alongside this programme, children are taught Reading Skills in class developing skills to understand and analyse texts.
