Helmingham Primary School & Nursery

Our School Day

The children can arrive any time from 8.15am for registration at 8.30am. Once your child has settled into school, please encourage them to be independent by hanging up their coat and putting their lunch box and book bag away themselves.

The School Day finishes at 3.30pm.   Parents should wait in the school playground (Years 1-6) or in the Nursery cloakroom (Nursery and Reception children) and the teacher will bring the children out to meet you.

Lunchtime and Breaks

The children will usually have a morning break at 10.30am for 15minutes.

Hedgehogs Class will have ongoing outdoor learning throughout the day.

Lunchtime is from 11.45 (N/R) or 12.00 (1-6) until 1.00pm. The children may bring a packed lunch or have a Nutritious, delicious school lunch which is prepared on site .

The children have a choice of main meal, jacket potato or a veggie option at a cost of £2.30 per day. Lunch payments should be made online at www.schoolgateway.com at the beginning of every week. Alternatively you can make a block payment and we will advise you when your balance is low.

School dinners are free of charge for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children.

Please do not include any sweets or fizzy drinks in packed lunches. Also please note that due to severe allergies among our students, we are a nut-free school. Please bear this in mind when providing your child with a packed lunch.

Please also provide your child with aa bottle of water which they may access during the school day.

Our children are also provided with a portion of fruit or vegetables for morning break.
