We are a large infant school with 270 pupils, located in Crawley, West Sussex. We treat every child as an individual and provide a happy, engaging and thriving environment where children flourish. We offer exciting learning experiences which have creativity at the heart, balancing the teaching of knowledge and skills and encouraging innovation. All our children are expected to be responsible members of their community, understanding and respecting everyone’s rights, different values and traditions and are encouraged to play an active role in the development of our school. Our overall vision is that all members of our community are successful learners, responsible citizens, effective contributors and happy, confident individuals.

This promotional menu is to encourage everyone to try a school meal - the usual lunchers and those whose more often bring in a sandwich or equivalent. Please encourage your child to sample the food on offer - even if they still want to bring in a packed lunch. We have chipolata sausages, omelette and baked beans or a quorn pattie for vegetarians. No need to pre-order!
