The Clubhouse - before and after school provision

The Clubhouse is staffed by a mixture of teaching assistants who currently work at Lime Tree as well as newly employed staff members.

The Club offers support with homework as well as activities which carry on the ethos of Lime Tree. Breakfast is provided in the morning and a light snack in the afternoon.

Sign up if you would like your child to receive school milk. It is free for children under 5 and available at a subsidised price of around £14 per term for children over the age of 5.

Please click logo for our official school uniform supplier. For details of our uniform, see here.

The school uses parentpay for all communication and ordering of school meals. Although you do not need to pay for your child's meals until the end of Year 2 you will still need to sign up and order for them to have a school dinner. Please wait for your activation letter in order to sign up - once you have received this, there is guidance here.
