Late Arrivals

Punctuality is really important as children are doing important tasks from the start of the day. However it is better to arrive late than miss school. Arrivals after 8.50 am should report to the School Office.

Dropping off and Collecting Children

Please will parents/carers of EYFS and KS1 children stay with their child(ren) and take them into class at the start of the school day. Parents/carers are responsible for supervising children before school starts. Please don’t let children play football, use play apparatus or go on the Trim Trail.

KS2 children may be left on the playground from 8.30 am as a member of staff will be outside to supervise the children. The fenced area is timetabled each morning so different classes can play football until school starts. There is no supervision for children before 8:30 am when the school gates are opened. The school cannot take responsibility for children who arrive before this time, unless they have been booked into the breakfast club.

The Headteacher or another member of the School Leadership Team is outside most mornings for an informal chat or to deal with any queries or concerns. We would ask that parents/carers speak to staff about any issues or concerns at the end of the school day, to avoid a late start to lessons.

If for any reason parents find that they will be delayed, or if another person will be collecting a child, please let the office know, so that a message can be passed on. Parents/carers are asked to use a password system when another person is collecting their child/ren.

Parents should leave the playgrounds promptly in the mornings as the gates are locked for site security at 9:10 am. Any parent in school after this time should sign in at the office and collect a badge.

When collecting children at the end of the day parents are asked to wait on the playground. Please note that the play apparatus should not be used by children unless a member of staff is supervising them.

Travelling to School

We are keen to encourage children to walk, cycle or scoot to school wherever possible. The school provides cycle/scooter racks just outside the playground. The school cannot take responsibility for bikes and scooters.

To make sure that all children are kept safe travelling to and from school, we would ask parents/carers who do need to travel by car to park with care and with consideration for our neighbours. Please make sure that the yellow zig-zags and access for the school bus are kept clear at all time.

Parents/carers should not drive into school when dropping off and collecting children at the start and end of the school day or when collecting children from after school clubs.
