Summer Holiday – Telephone Number For COVID Contact - 07843858769

If any child tests positive for COVID-19 over the Summer Holidays, please can we ask that you contact us on 07843858769 so that we can support you and, where appropriate, inform other members of the school community.


The telephone will be checked regularly so please leave a message giving all details if the phone is not answered when you ring.  Please can you also give a contact number which we can call you back on.


It is important that you let us know as quickly as possible.  Thank you.


We very much hope that no children will test positive for COVID-19 over the Summer but we want to be fully prepared if this does happen.


Take care; keep safe!

Our wonderful kitchen team Nicky and Sarah in partnership with City Catering ensure the food  served at the school is nutritious, healthy and 'appropriate' for the wide range of needs of our children/Young people across the school.

Lunch is served in 2 sittings:

We pride ourselves on how we can meet the individual feeding requirements of our children and their many different, wonderful ways.

We do this by developing a close-knit, skilled lunchtime team who are also supported by the Class Support team to ensure lunchtimes are a key part of the school day.      The lunchtime team have all received, specific 'feeding training' from the school's Speech and Language Therapist (SALT) who also helps monitor individual feeding plans and our day to day practice, alongside our key lunchtime lead Karen Collins.
