The School Day

Collection of Children

At the start and end of the school day, parents and carers are encouraged into the school grounds.  This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school. However, please note that all children need to be released to their named person before teachers are available for any queries

Children, where possible, need to be collected by their named person to ensure children's safety. Please see the school office for a form, if required.

If there is a change to normal arrangements for collection (e.g. an unexpected delay or another person collecting your child) please let us know as soon as possible by filling in the form below or contact the school office on 01924 303520

Staff are on hand outside drop off and collection points every day should you require any assistance.


Getting to School

Walking is always the best option as there are lots of added benefits, such as being healthier and improving the safety of pedestrians and road-users.

If you do need to travel to school by car, we ask that you park wisely and safely respecting nearby residents and parking regulations.

The parent car park is situated at the bottom of the hill in the large car park as the top car park is for staff use only.

Due to the growing number of staff, parents are not permitted to use the staff car park located at the top of the hill. For your child's safety, all parents (including those with children attending breakfast club) should park safely in the parent's car park, located at the bottom of the hill.
