Top Table

Have you ever wanted to be served dinner by the Principal of the academy? Well at Hollington Primary Academy you can be!

Each week Mrs Reece holds the 'Top Table' where you have your lunch in her office. The Top Table is set with a golden table cloth, as well as plates, glasses and cutlery -there is even a bunch of flowers! She will then collect your dinner, or packed lunch, plate it up for you and serve you a drink of your choice of orange or blackcurrant squash. Mrs Reece will then wait on you while you eat! It is a great opportunity for the children to ask Mrs Reece anything they like, as well as interacting with children from other classes and year groups. 

To gain a place on our 'Top Table' you need to demonstrate the academy values when you are outside at break and lunchtimes across the week. Our lunchtime staff will then nominate a child from each class, who then gets to select a friend to go with them. 

"I love getting selected for the top table! It is a real reward for always doing the right thing at lunchtimes. I get to talk to Mrs Reece about my learning, while she serves me dinner. I mean, what other school has their Principal serving you lunch?"
