Drop-off and collection

At the beginning of the school day, Nursery and Reception parents are expected to drop their children at the school gate, they will walk to Building 2, where there will be a member of staff waiting. At the end of the day, full time nursery and reception children are collected from the playground. Part time pupils are collected from the school gate at 11.45 am.


KS1 and KS2 children should be dropped at the gate in the morning where there will be a senior member of staff and should be collected from their allocated collection point in the playground at the end of the day.


If normal arrangements for home time collection have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let the office know.  This avoids any confusion or upset.


Getting to school

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option!


However, if you are travelling by public transport please leave enough time to allow for delays, so that your child is in school on time.


We expect our school community to show consideration to our neighbours and ask that if you use a car to travel to school, you park responsibly. Please do not park in front of the school gates, this is an emergency exit/entrance.
