All About Our School
The School Day
The school opens at 8.40 am, and children should go straight to their classroom. Although children may arrive before this time, staff cannot be responsible for the safety of your child until 8.40am.
Teaching times are:

All children have a mid-morning break of twenty minutes.

The school office is open to parents from 8.30 am to 9.15 am and again from 3.15 pm to 3.45 pm during term time. You are very welcome to telephone us with enquiries at any time during the school day.

Jewellery and Cosmetics
We ask that children do not come into school wearing any jewellery, make up temporary tattoos or nail varnish. Children may wear watches, as long as parents are happy that they can be responsible for them. Children with pierced ears should wear small, plain STUD earrings only, with one earring in each ear. All watches and earrings must be removed before PE and swimming. If earrings are recent, please bring tape to cover the studs. Under no circumstances should the class teacher help to remove earrings. Please consider leaving ear piercing until the start of the summer holidays.
Our policy is to continue to develop each child's pursuit for personal healthcare through good choices and respect for their bodies. We encourage healthy eating choices for lunches and the use of water bottles. The bottles are kindly provided to all children by the PTFA in the colour of the school team of which they are a member. Water is drunk throughout the day and bottles are stored outside classrooms in named trays for easy access. All children are encouraged to bring water in the morning and to take it home empty at the end of the day.
Children may bring their own packed lunch and drink but hot meals are available and may be chosen on a day to day basis. Meals are eaten together in the school hall. We ask parents to pay weekly, monthly or half termly in advance, preferably by our on line ‘schools cash office’ or by cheque payable to Hampshire County Council. The menu runs on a selection process based on a three weekly cycle and the children have a choice of two different meals each day as well as a picnic lunch in warm weather. One selection is always a vegetarian option.
More information on ordering and paying for school meals can be downloaded here. Hampshire County Council Catering Services (HC3S) has an online service which enables parents to check their eligibility for free school meals. This self-service option is available at: https://www3.hants.gov.uk/hc3s/freeschoolmeals.htm
