Reception new starters

On this page I will add information that I feel will be useful prior to your child starting reception at Eastcroft Park. If you have any queries or suggestions please email

School readiness ideas

School Attendance:

Unlike in school nursery/private day nurseries there is a requirement to attend, and this is monitored! Non-attendance CAN result in investigation by the council's school attendance team and ultimately in sanctions for parents!

School Dinners:

ALL infant children receive a free school meal through the government universal free school meals scheme, there is no need to apply for this, you are just not charged should your child need/want a school dinner. Despite this, it is still worth completing a FSM application as any eligibility lasts 6 years (potentially whole of primary school). 


The school dinner menu is included below for September to April:
