Lunch

Hot lunches are available and brought into school using fresh local ingredients. Alternatively children have packed lunches.  Pupils may have a snack at break-time. Please click here for more infomation about lunches.

Homework

This is an important part of your child’s education and aids the learning process.  Supervised Prep is available for all KS2 children at school from 15.45 to 16.30 in homework club.

Caring

We pride ourselves on the high standard of pastoral care we provide. Our pupils develop into confident, independent young people who share our values of respect for others. The school encourages involvement in community service and the pupils participate in various fund-raising activities to help others less fortunate than themselves.  We support local charities such as the Trussell Trust and In Jolly Good Company.

Preparation for Senior School

The choice of senior school is very important and parents are offered advice and encouragement concerning their child’s future.  Pupils are prepared for the Senior School entrance examination and the 11+ examination to the grammar schools should parents wish. Many pupils make the transition into the next stage of their education at Leehurst Swan and families benefit by having all their children at one school.

Supervision Before and After School

The school provides a breakfast club service from 07.00 to 08.00 charged at £5.50.

Pupils can arrive at school from 08.00 ready for registration at 08.30. There is a homework club for children in Key Stage 2 that runs from 15.45 until 16.30 each day, supervised by the teaching staff.  There is no charge for this service.

After School Care

Children may stay at school up to 6.00pm. They are looked after by qualified staff in the under eights provision, that is fully registered with OFSTED. Over eights are looked after in the prep department by a group of specialist staff. There is an additional charge of £2.50 per half hour or part thereof.

Academic Scholarships for Entry into Year 3

There are two academic scholarships available for children entering Year 3. These will be dependent upon performance in the examination, which consists of tests in numeracy and literacy. For more information about scholarships, please click here.
