Please go to the class designated area where they will be collected at 9.10 and taken to class by staff.


The first part of break is a valued communication learning time when pupils have a snack and a drink. This is then followed by time outside unless the weather is unsuitable. In this case pupils can take part in a variety of indoor activities. Once students are in the college they are encouraged to make their own choices on how to spend their break times.


The school lunch time is 12.00 – 1.30; Primary School have their lunch first and then go out to play, returning to class for reading time. The Secondary School have extended lesson time followed by play and then their lunch.

Pupils are supported by staff to make progress on their personal and social skills during this time. The Early year classes and college eat in their classes while everyone else eats in the school hall. Those children that are able to, line up at the hatch with their plate and select their meal from the wide variety of choices available. Specialist diets are catered for. They are encouraged to sit and wait until their whole table has finished eating and then clear away after themselves.
