School meals

We partner with Chartwells for school meals - they have information on menus and paying. All children in reception, year 1 and year 2 are entitled to free school meals (FSM) - you might be eligible to apply for free school meals after this time if you are on income support.



Governors help head teachers and senior staff manage school standards. You can register to become a governor at the Gov.uk website.


You can read more about the national curriculum at the Gov.uk website. The religious education syllabus is determined by SACRE, who consult with the major local faith communities.
