Dinner Money

School meals can be paid for daily (£2.50) or weekly (£12.50) by cash or cheque (made payable to The John Fielding School) and monies brought into school should be placed in an envelope with the pupils name clearly stating what the money is for.

Wet Breaks

Pupils will remain in classrooms supervised by staff where snacks and drinks may be eaten. Every classroom will have games and activities for orderly indoor breaks.

End of day arrangements

At the end of the school day the duty team ensures that all pupils are safely on their taxis. Once this is the case the designated staff instructs the drivers that it is safe to leave.

School uniform

We encourage the wearing of School Uniform up until Year 11 to support the children in having a sense of belonging to their school. We do understand that for some children with sensory issues clothing can be a problem; please let your class teacher know if this is an issue for your child. From Year 12 students may wear their own choice of clothes. Our uniform supplier is School Trends.


Communication is essential for the smooth daily running of the school. Parents and staff utilise the home school diaries to ensure messages and information are easily shared.


If your child is not well enough to attend school, please phone the school on 01205 363395. Please note if a pupil is sick they should remain at home for 48hrs after the last time they were sick.
