Delivering and Collecting children

The children should not be left in the playground before 8:40am, as there is no supervision. After this time a member of the Senior Leadership Team will be on duty at the gate to ensure the children remain in the playground.

If children arrive at school after this time, then a parent/carer needs to sign them in at the School Office.

Children can be collected at the end of the day from either the main or the EYFS playgrounds. Once again a member of the Senior Leadership Team will be on duty at the front gate. For safety reasons we would ask that everyone leaves the site using the pedestrian crossing rather than crossing the car park.

Due to space, parents are not able to park in the car park, unless this has been agreed with the Headteacher. However we do have an informal agreement with Waitrose that we can use their car park at drop off and pick up times.
