Birthdays & Healthy Schools
Some parents like to bring in treats as part of a celebration for a child's birthday or a special occasion. However to protect children with allergies we are unable to hand out such treats and you will be asked to return them to your home.
We have over 50 children with serious medical conditions and many of these are allergy based. So, to keep all children safe (even those who present no allergic reactions) no foods are accepted in the school from parents as part of birthday celebrations. Thank you for your understanding.
All the food for the children is cooked on site by the team at Oasis Catering. You can see the menus by clicking on the link below. We run a three week menu and inform the parents about which week we are on every week in the newsletter.
You may be entitled to Free School Meals.
All children in Reception, Year One and Year Two receive a cooked meal each day. This is a Universal Free School Meal. However, if you are part of the benefit system you may be entitled to Free School Meals AND discounts on other school costs. The school will also receive extra funding to spend on the education of your child. Please click the link to find out more details.

If you would like to know what the children learn at Anson then download our learning leaflets for each year group. These contain the targets for your child in their year group.
Anson Primary School believes that 'tick-sheet' homework is not a good use of children's time at home. We set meaningful homework that is spread over time for the children to dive deeply into subjects. Find out more by clicking the link below.
We use Apple Technology in the classroom to help us fulfil our vision of creative learning. Children use music, video, photography, drawing and coding to support their learning. They also use iPad to develop their reading, writing and mathematics. Our use of technology is embedded across the curriculum and all teachers are trained in how to use it effectively to ensure rapid progress in learning.
We film all the action from the Anson stage so that you can watch it again at home. If you need to be at work, or cannot make an assembly, please click the link below and watch the performance online.
We have outstanding behaviour at Anson both in the classroom and around the school. This is because of a clear set of rules and high expectations of the children. As such we reward everyone as an individual, a class and as a whole school. Find out more below.
We have a social networking presence to keep parents informed about the school, wherever they find it easiest to access. Please do 'follow' or 'like' us if you stumble onto a social network.
