Children attend either the morning (8.30- 11.30) or the afternoon (12.15-3.15). Parents are asked their preference of session time; however no guarantees can be made.  There are also 30 hour spaces available at Greenfields, for children who are at least 3 years old with parents who are eligible.  Children who stay for 30 hours a week will be in school from 8.30-3.15, with lunch arrangements in place from 11.30-12.15.  Children who stay at school during the lunch period are provided with a hot school dinner and supervision by qualified staff.  There is a daily charge of £5 for this provision, which includes a hot meal cooked on the school premises.
