School Uniform

We do not have a school uniform. We are happy for children to come to school in clothes that will help them be comfortable, keeping in mind we are often outdoors and we have PE a few times a week.

Healthy Eating Policy 

We have a healthy eating policy in place. We have two eating breaks per day and our healthy eating policy, click here, will help guide you on your child’s lunch box. Nuts and seeds are not permitted due to allergies.
