Term and Holiday Dates

See Term Dates for our term and holiday dates, including when the schools are closed for Teacher Education Days.


Our main school uniform suppliers are The School Shop in Evesham and Monkhouse Schoolwear in Worcester. Our uniform is also available to order online from MyClothing. You can find details about what the children are expected to wear at PreschoolFirst & Nursery, and Middle School. The PTA often have ‘Pre-Loved’ uniforms for sale.

Free School Meals

If you think you may be eligible for Free School Meals, you can apply online. It is important to apply even if your child is currently receiving Universal Free School Meals (Reception to Year 2).

Ready Steady Worcestershire – school holiday food and activities

The Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme offers free holiday provision to children in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) and vulnerable families during Easter, summer and Christmas school holidays.

Cool Milk

Abbey Park First & Nursery School and Abbey Park Pre-School provides a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils (up to the end of Year 4).  School milk is free for under-5s, and for over-5s it is available at a subsidised price of around £16 per term. Further details, including how to register.

Breakfast Club and After School Wrap Around Care

For children in Reception and above, we offer a morning breakfast club and an afterschool wrap around club. Sorry we can’t take Nursery or Pre-School children.

School Meals

Our school meals are provided by The Deli@Pershore. Please place your order online.

School Dogs

Miss Scully has two school dogs, Indie and Raffi. Please let us know if you don’t want your child to come into contact with the dogs.

School App

We use a mobile app called Connect by Parentapps to send important messages, reminders and letters etc. The app is free to download on Android PlayStore and Apple AppStore. Further details here.


For children in Pre-School and Nursery we use an additional mobile app called Tapestry. This allows us to share photos of your child’s learning journey with you. Further details here.
