Drop-off and collection
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground, This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.
If you would like to use our early start club please speak to the school office in advance to ensure that there is a place available.
Until the clocks go forward in the Spring, please ensure that all children in Year 3 or below are collected from school by an adult when attending an after school club. Any child attending a club that finishes at 4.30pm or later, should also be accompanied home by an adult. This is for the safety reasons, to ensure that children are accompanied in the dark.
Getting to school
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please be considerate of children and under no circumstances should parents park in the school car park. Our school has one allocated disabled parking bay beside Oak class. May we respectfully remind everyone that the disabled parking bay is for use only by individuals displaying a registered disabled blue badge.
