As Raddlebarn has received its ‘healthy school’ status, children may have a healthy drink (milk or water). All nursery children receive a piece of fruit and milk each day. Infants have a piece of fruit each day. Please send a healthy snack (fruit, vegetable or piece of cheese) into school for junior children each day. It is important children have a named water bottle in school, so they can stay hydrated (this is proven to improve concentration).

Dropping Off and Picking Up

We encourage parents into the playground at dropping off and picking up times, because we want to build good relationships with the families of our children. Also, you can always leave a message with the staff member on duty at the door, or, if you want to speak to a teacher or other member of staff, you can ask to make an appointment at the school office.
