Photographs – Tempest Photography came into school on Tuesday 22nd September to take photos of the children. The order forms were sent home with the children.

No Nut Policy – may we please remind you that we have a no nuts policy in school, as there are several children with severe nut allergies. Please ensure all snacks and foods are free of nuts. These may include for example mini Bakewell Tarts, Battenburg, muesli bars, Nutella etc.


Healthy Eating – we would like to encourage all children to eat healthily at school. Please do not put chocolate bars and sweets into their home packed lunches. For ideas on healthy snacks please following this link –

Frubes and pouch style yoghurts can be quite messy if your child struggles to open them. Please find an alternative if possible.
