Start of Day

The school gates are opened at 8:30am and a member of staff is on duty on the playground at this time. However we ask parents to try not to send or bring children to school too early.  Parents can either use the playground entrance near the car park or can use the Hilda Street entrance to bring children to wait on the playground.  In wet weather parents can shelter in Kay’s house or shelter under the playground canopy.

At 8:45 parents can either use the playground door or the door on Hilda Street to take children to class and to visit the school office as the front entrance will not be opened at this time. All doors are supervised by a member of staff. Parents with buggies can leave them safe and dry under Kay’s House with a member of staff whilst they drop off older children.  Children in nursery and reception need to walk through the nursery playground to take children to class.

End of Day

The school gates onto the field entrance and the gate on Hilda Street are opened at 3:00 p.m. and parents can wait on the playground if they arrive early.  At 3:15pm parents with children in foundation stage can collect children from class.  In Years 1 and 2 at 3:10pm parents can then collect children from class.  Years 3-6 will be brought by their class teacher to the playground for collection.  We require written parental permission for children to walk home by themselves.

Collection and drop off from Nursery at Mid Day.

Parents should collect and drop off children via the main school entrance.
