KS2 children are encouraged to adopt healthy eating choices and are asked to bring fruit or vegetables in to snack on.  There is also a healthy tuck shop in school for pupils in KS2 selling raisins and fruit juice.

School uniform may be purchased from the local stockist in South Elmsall or from Tesco online. Long hair must be tied back as part of Health & Safety welfare in addition, boys are not permitted to have bleached or shaved hairstyles, this is in line with Minsthorpe Academy.
