  1. THE DAY AT COLDEAN
  2. School Day

School Day - from September 2021

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.

If you wish to allow your child to walk home independently we must have written confirmation of this (an email is acceptable).

If there any changes to pick up e.g. a different adult collecting, unavoidable delays then please phone the school office so that staff are aware.

Late arrivals must enter the school through the main entrance.

Entrance to Nursery is to the left of the Front Office, along the side of the building near the flag pole and Junior bike shed.
