General Information

Doors open at 8.50 am.

Registration is at 9.00 am. The porch doors will be locked at 9.00 so if you arrive later than this please use the front entrance.

Dinner money is £10.00 per week. This can be paid weekly, fortnightly, monthly or each half-term. Payment should be sent in a sealed envelope or purse marked with the child's name. Cheques should be made out to Cumbria County Council. If you want your child to change from school dinner to packed lunch we require a week's notice.

A packed lunch brought into school needs to have a balanced healthy content.

Free School Meals - If your child is entitled to free school meals you must complete a form and return it to Blencathra House, Whitehaven.


We receive free fruit or vegetables every day for the children in Foundation Unit and Key Stage 1as part of the 'Free Fruit and Vegetables for Schools Scheme'. If children in Key Stage 2 would like fruit it costs £1.00 per week. We are also part of the subsidised milk scheme. One third of a pint is currently available at a cost of £1 per week for every child. Children who are in the Foundation class receive the milk free until the beginning of the half term after they are 5 years old. We also encourage the drinking of plain water regularly throughout the day.
