The School Day

Lunch time 12 - 1 (for children in reception, Year 1 and Year 2)
12:15 - 1pm
School closes at : 3:10pm
It is extremely important that your child is here on time. Please make sure that you are here on time to pick your child up. Contact the office if you know that you are going to be late.
We strongly encourage children to try the school dinners, as these are carefully nutritionally balanced. If your child brings a packed lunch, please make sure that this does not contain any chocolates or sweets. As a guide, choose yogurt, fruit or a biscuit from the sweet biscuits aisle rather than the confectionary section in the supermarket.
So that we apply this policy fairly and consistently, if staff notice sweets or chocolate in lunch boxes they will take these away and return them to you at the end of the school day.
We are very proud of the smart school uniform that we have at Sutton Courtenay and thank you for your support in keeping up the high standards that we expect.
School uniform consists of:
Emerald green polo shirt (available with and without logo)
Emerald green jumper or cardigan
Black tailored trousers, skirt or pinafore (no jeans)
Black or white socks
Back tights (leggings may be worn under a skirt or shorts, not alone)
Securely fastening black shoes or trainers (no coloured logos or coloured soles - must be all black. No slip-on shoes.)
Emerald Green T shirt
plimsolls or trainers
School bags, book bags and fleeces are also available to purchase.
No Jewellery or make up to be worn at school. Nail varnish and 'tattoos' should be removed before school.
Travelling to and from school
We are very pleased that the majority of those children who live a short distance from the school do walk, scoot or cycle to school. There are storage facilities for these modes of transport. It is essential that all children who cycle to school MUST wear a properly fitting cycle helmet.
