Lunch 12:20 to 1:20 – Children can either bring a packed lunch (eaten outside when the weather is fine) or they may go to Balcarras for a hot meal.  Children entitled to Free School Meals can also go to Balcarras should they wish.  Our lunchtime staff look after the children at this time - a member of the teaching staff will accompany the children who go to Balcarras.   The menus for Balcarras may be found on the Parents tab.
