Why does the school only have 30 spaces?
The size of the school is dictated by the site allocated: Given the extensive Roman relics and villas surrounding the area, building on the site is limited to avoid disturbing the scheduled monument that lies next to the school.
School Menu and meals
We are working closely with our Redfield Chef, Toruand a local provider to provide healthy meals for the Somerdale school, until the Somerdale kitchen is established. All our meals follow the government guidance on healthly school meals and are provided free of charge to pupil under 7 years of age. All children eat together at lunchtime with staff enjoying a range of home-cooked and locally sourced food. Toru and his team vary the menu regularly to take advatage of seasonal foods and fruits. All diets are catered for including halal, gluten free, vegetarian.
What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
