School Meals and Snacks

Our Early Years Foundation Stage includes Nursery provision. We offer 30 hours of provision alongside the Reception class: 8.45 – 11.45, 11.45 – 2.45, with the option of staying for the final half hour until 3.15 for a small cost. Our teacher Miss Stewart is a supported by teaching assistant Mrs McCormick.

For further information, or to apply for a place in Nursery, please contact the school or refer the Cumbria County Council’s School Admissions Section ‘Applying for a Nursery Place’. In the event of our Nursery being over-subscribed, our usual Admissions Policy applies.

The school day begins at 8:50am each day with registration. Children can be dropped off from 8.45am each day either to the classroom door (EYFS and KS1) or left on the playground (KS2) where there will a member of staff supervising. There is a morning break from 10.30 – 10.45 for Nursery/Reception and KS1 and 11am until 11.15am for KS2. Lunchtime is between 12:15pm and 1:15pm. There is an afternoon break for Nursery/Reception and KS1 from 2:30pm—2:45pm.

The school day finishes at 3:20pm. Parents are asked to wait in the front playground and teachers will direct children to the adult who is collecting them.

For our children in Nursery we offer a flexible approach to provision where parents can select the hours they wish their child to attend. Please contact us to discuss the options available.

Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are entitled to free school meals as part of the universal Infant free School Meals scheme. Children throughout the school can select to have a hot school meal at lunch time or bring their own packed lunch.

School meals are provided by Wildlife Oasis. Carefully selected menus are devised by the school to provide a varied, balanced and healthy option for all children in school on a three-week rotation. Meals are ordered in advance through ParentMail.

Fruit is provided to EYFS and KS1 as part of the Government Fruit Scheme at break times. Children in KS2 are encouraged to bring in their own healthy snack for break times. School Council run and organise a Healthy Tuck Shop at break times several times a week.

Lunch Menu

At Beetham we can provide hot, tasty lunches each day. These are free for children in Reception and Key Stage 1 and £2.75 a day for nursery and Key Stage 2 children. Our varied menus change each term.
