New to Reception - September 2020

School Milk - see below for more details

We look forward to welcoming your children to our school in September.

We really want to make the transition to school a successful one and begin a purposeful partnership with school and home.

Although you will get a lot of the information at parent meetings (we hope to offer recorded or live Zoom meetings before the end of term) and through various communications, we are posting a lot of it here so that you can look at it in your own time.  

It can be really overwhelming to take it all in during one information session so we have already populated the page here with information, links, support and advice which we hope that you find useful.  You may have the chance to read some of this before the school meeting or before September.

Our school milk scheme

Did you know our school has a school milk scheme?
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.

“How much does it cost?”
Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.

“Why should I register my child?”
School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.

“How do I register my child?”

If your child is under five-

  1. Go to or pick up a form from school.
  2. Just register by a Tuesday for your child’s free milk to start the following week.
