Admissions Form Please click on the link above to access the online admissions form. The form is likely to take approximately half an hour to complete.
School uniform Gossops Green School official uniform is purchased from Taylor Made Uniform. Children can also wear unbranded uniform purchased from all major supermarkets and clothing shops, as long as it is in the school colours.
Hot school meals All pupils in Reception are entitled to Universal Free School Meals, although children can also bring in a healthy packed lunch. Hot school meals, although free, will need to be booked through our ParentPay system by the Thursday night prior to the meal so that the kitchen can order enough food and so that your child will get the meal of their choice. Children can have a mixture of hot school meals and packed lunches from home.
Breakfast Club and Cygnet Crew We offer before and after school wraparound care via Breakfast Club and Cygnet Crew. These are paid clubs and need to be booked online, on a first come first served basis.
Pupil Premium/Free School Meals If you are in receipt of certain benefits, your child may be entitled to Pupil Premium funding. We encourage all parents who are eligible to apply, as this funding helps both the school and your child.
School Milk Children under 5 can receive a free carton of milk every breaktime. Children over 5 can continue to receive the milk, although parents will need to pay for this. Please complete the form on the Cool Milk website to order milk for your child.
