  • School Dinners – After the half term, we are introducing a new layout to our current school menu with a band system. Your child will still be asked each morning what they will be having for their school lunch. Depending on their choice, they will be given a band to wear to confirm this. The options will be as follows: Meat (red), Vegetarian (green), Deli (blue). Pupils who have a special menu in place due to dietary needs will also wear a yellow band as well as their chosen meal. To view the new menu, please click here where you will see the colours linked to the meals.

She has been using her amazing skills and talent, playing the drums and the piano for the congregation.
