All children’s meals must be ordered through ParentPay.

What After-School clubs are ran?

Members of staff run after-school clubs in Terms 1&2, Terms 3&4 and Term 5&6. These vary from term to term.

What should my child bring with them to school?

Your child will need to bring their book bag containing a reading book, reading record and full water bottle. During the summer term, children are expected to have a hat for break times and a small bottle of suncream in a labelled plastic bag.

Why does my child have a purple PE T-Shirt?

Our school has four ‘houses’ for inter-school sports competitions, sports day and house points. This instils our children with a sense of teamwork and community. Purple is for Avebury, red is for Bowood, yellow is for Longleat and green is for Lydiard.

How do I pay for school trips?
