  1. THE DAY AT COLDEAN
  2. School Day

School Day - Updated to reflect our COVID-19 PREVENTION MEASURES

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.

Our COVID-19 PREVENTION MEASURES include clearly marked walkways and waiting points around the school site that we ask you adhere to. 

Please remember that only one parent/carer should come onto the school site.

If normal drop-off/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.

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

Nursery

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.
