Journey to school and drop off

Many children walk, cycle or use their scooter to come to school. We have a large, secure bike shed by the main entrance and a scooter store on the Infant playground. If you do need to travel by car then please park SAFELY and abide by parking regulations - they are there to keep everyone safe.

End of the day

Parents/carers of Infant children (YR, Y1 & Y2) are encouraged to wait on the Infant playground for the end of their day at 3:10pm. This allows a chance for staff to speak to parents and develop strong home-school partnerships.

Junior children (Y3 - Y6) are dismissed from the side of the main entrance at 3:15pm. Parents/carers are encouraged to wait at the top of the car park. 

If normal collection arrangements have to be altered e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child, please let us know.  This avoids any confusion or upset.
