School meals are provided by Dallam School and menus are currently running on a three week cycle with occasional variations. All meals are prepared and cooked daily using fresh, seasonal vegetables. 3 year olds receive part-time Nursery Education in the Foundation Stage Unit, then in the September after their 4th birthday, they begin full-time education in the Reception Year and move into a classroom of their own.

Our school is a place where children are cared for, encouraged and respected. We aim to enable every child to reach his or her full potential in an atmosphere where they feel supported and valued.
