Before & After School 

Children can come into school and go straight to their classroom between 08.30am (when the gates open) and 08.45am. The school day will begin with registration at 8.50am.  

The gates open for parents of KS1 children (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) just before 3pm. Parents are asked to wait in the playgrounds. The children will be brought out by their teacher to the playgrounds to meet you. In the interests of safety please do not walk through the car park with children.

KS2 children finish school at 3.20pm and should be collected from the playground exit point for their year.  Older children can only leave the school grounds to meet their parent off site if the parent has completed the form giving permission for this arrangement and/or the class teacher has been informed.

Should a parent realise that they are going to be late collecting their child, they should telephone the school office on 01252 716307 immediately. Parents are asked to join forces with a friend so that in the event of their non-arrival, their children have somebody to whom they can immediately turn.
