We have a variety of assemblies throughout the week. We start each week with a whole school assembly, where we begin shared conversations around the social and emotional aspects of learning, as well as exploring national and international days of reflection and religious festivals. Through the week, children also enjoy class assemblies and key stage singing assemblies. Each week ends with an achievement assembly, a celebration of all that the children and adults in our school have achieved during the week.
Children can choose to have either a school dinner or packed lunch. School dinners are prepared from fresh ingredients on site each day and provide a hot, nourishing meal. Children are offered a choice of dishes with at least two vegetarian options. Those who bring a packed lunch are encouraged to have a balanced meal including fruit and salad or vegetables. We have worked very closely with the catering provider to improve our offer to the children. This includes new equipment including a deli salad bar, as well as revisions to the Menu.
Pupils in Key Stage 1 are provided daily with fruit for their mid-morning snack; we also request Key Stage 2 pupils bring in fruit for a snack; and, children in the Nursery and Reception classes are provided with milk and healthy snacks.
