Are there parking facilities available?                                                                                For your convenience, we have implemented a fantastic 'Drop and Dash' service that begins at 8.30am. At the end of Avocet Way turn right and follow the one-way system where members of staff will be waiting to greet your child. This can be used any morning and does not require any pre-booking.                                                                           

There is a car park near the Grange School and residential parking. Please park legally and be mindful of the local residents and parents/carers using pushchairs on the paths.

How much are school dinners?                                                                                        £2.20 per day.

How do I arrange for my child to have school dinners?                                                Click here for the online School Money system and use the login details that we sent to you. Menus are under the Parents Information section of this site. If you have any problems, please do not hesitate to contact our office team. All meals must be booked a day in advance.

My child receives free universal school meals. Do I still need to book them?                    Yes, please follow the above instructions. The meals are not prepared onsite. We need to pass the details on to our catering providers.

Do I need to tell you if my child has a packed lunch?                                                      No, if there is no school dinner booking, we will assume that you are providing a packed lunch.

Can a packed lunch be provided for my child instead of a hot meal?             Unfortunately, this is not something that our caterers provide. The only foods available are those on the menu.

Do you offer wrap-around care provisions?                                                                     Yes, we offer breakfast and after school club. For more information, please see our Wrap Around Care page. There is a choice of after school clubs available, both from us and outside providers onsite. These can change from term to term. Please see our Clubs page for the most up to date timetables.
