All our meals follow the government guidance on healthly school meals. All children eat together at lunchtime with staff enjoying a range of home-cooked and locally sourced food. Our chef, Toru, and his team vary the menu regularly to take advatage of seasonal foods and fruits. Here is a copy of our latest menu. From time to time we have family suppers where all are welcome to have supper. Every week we have a family breakfast where all can share breakfast before the school day. The menu for this includes yogurt and granola, bacon and egg muffins, cheese and herb muffins, french toast, toast and honey or jam. All diets are catered for including halal, gluten free, vegetarian.
Halal Meat Certificates.
All our meat is either non-halal or halal. Unless parents have told us they wish their child to have halal meat all children are given non-halal meat. Both meats are cooked separately and kept separate for serving. All children and adults have a choice. Family breakfasts and supers have non-halal and halal options.

How will the impact of the spending of the Pupil Premium be measured?
To monitor progress on attainment, new measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of students covered by the Pupil Premium. The usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of the cohort’s attainment, will be used to inform student progress and enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention. The strategy is reviewed regularly to ensure maximum impact with a full review July each year.and
How we spent the grant of £47,00 in 2016-17
We use the money received to address barriers to learning which include:
- Language access
- Parental engagement
- Literacy levels
The sports premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2017 to 2018 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
1. All pupils engaged in regular physical activity and aware of the benefits of healthy active lifestyles
2. the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement by giving children experience of competitive sport and excellence in specific areas
3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
5. increased participation in competitive sport
Regular staff training and review ensures sustainability.
Last year (2016-17) we received £8875. This was spent on sports equipment including including outdoor equipment and games equipment. We also used this funding to fund the coaches to take all year groups swimming for 10 weeks each.
This year 2017-18 we will receive £17120. We plan to use this for staff training, netting for the multi-use games area and coaches to sports events and swimming. We also are using some to pay towards a trained Sports Coach to take an hour's PE in each class each week.
As the school is growing a year at a time we will not have Key Stage 2 performance data until 2021.
