Drop-off and collection

At the beginning of the school day, the main gates will be open from 8.35 and parents can drop their children off at the gate, where there will by a member of staff. Other members of staff will be on the playground until the bell goes. No parents will be able to come on to the playground.

 

At the end of the school day, parents MUST come onto the playground (Unless Year 5/6 and you have sent a letter into school, letting us know they are walking). This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.

Getting to school

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.
