School Day & School Meals
Children should not arrive at school before 8:40am, unless they are attending a before school club.
The morning session is from 8.55am to noon, with a break from 10:45 to 11:00am
The dinner break is from 12noon to 1:00pm
The afternoon session is from 1:00pm to 3:15pm.
Dinners are cooked on the premises, but children may, if they prefer, bring a packed lunch. A daily choice will always include a vegetarian option, a jacket potato option and fruit. The current cost of school dinners is £2.41 per day, paid weekly in advance by either Parent Pay, cash or cheque.
Pupils in foundation, Year 1 and 2 can now benefit from the government initiative of Universal Infant Free School meals.
Is your child in foundation, Year 1 or Year 2?
If so, you might be able to help raise money for your school! Although your child is now eligible for a free school meal, it’s important that you notify the school if you are in receipt of any of the following benefits:
- Child Tax Credit
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under Part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Guaranteed Element of State Pension Credit
- Working Tax Credit Run-On
- Universal Credit
The school may be able to receive pupil premium funding which can be used to support your child’s education.
Please see Cornwall Council’s website for criteria and the online application form.
To encourage an understanding of money and its value we run a tuck shop on a Tuesday at morning break. £1.00 is sufficient to purchase a drink and a healthy snack.
We hope that parents will provide clear water bottles on a daily basis for each child to use in the classroom throughout the day. Fruit is provided free of charge to the pupils in class 1 and is available each day at first break.
