Start of the day

Children and parents must wait on the bottom playground. Gates will be unlocked and children are expected to walk to their class entrance independently.


End of the day 

At the end of the day there are several collection points depending on the year group of your child. Children are brought by their teachers to the exit where parents must make contact with the member of staff before a child is dismissed.  


Children will only be allowed to go home with their own parents/carers. If someone different is picking your children up you must inform your child’s teacher. If it is a permanent arrangement such as an after school club or child minder a letter must still be written to the child’s teacher.
