Coming and Going

ALL children, except Nursery and Reception children, should say good-bye at the gate to whoever brings them to school and walk round to their entrance. Children can enter school anytime between 8.45 and 9 a.m., where their teacher will be waiting in class with daily learning activities.


At the end of school sessions Nursery and Reception children are collected at their respective front entrances. All other infant children leave via their designated exits at the front of the school. No infant child will be permitted to leave school without a parent or designated carer.

Junior children leave via the exit at the foot of the tower block. KS2 children may leave school at the end of the day on their own provided they have permission from their parents.

Should you be unavoidably delayed, please try and get a message through to the school. Whilst we are anxious to take every care to safeguard your child's interests, parents are reminded that it is their responsibility to bring children to school and to collect them from school on time.


Collecting your child during the school day

If your child is taken out of school during the school day (eg, for a dental or medical appointment) permission of the head or deputy head must be given. For health and safety reasons you will be asked to sign a register recording why and when you took your child out of the school.
