Drop-off and collection

At the beginning and the end of the school day, parents and families are welcomed into our playgrounds. This helps to build a close relationship between home and school – we want to have strong links with all of our parents and families.  If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.

Home time

Doors open at 2:50pm

We need to know who is collecting your child at all times. If we do not recognise the adult collecting a child, we will not allow child to go home with this adult until we have had confirmation from a known adult. Please always let staff know if somebody new will be collecting your child.

Again because of  social distancing, if your youngest child’s last name starts with the letters A – J, please collect them at 2:50pm. If your youngest child’s last name starts with the letters K – Z, please collect your child/children at 3:10pm. Please remember only one family member should collect your child to reduced the number of people on site. Please help us to keep everyone safe.

Our After School Club provision (Monday – Thursday) will begin on the week beginning Monday 28th September.  We offer a selection of exciting and engaging clubs for children in Year 1-Year 6, please visit our After School Club page to find our more.

After School Clubs begin at 2:50pm and finish at 3:50pm. Please collect your child from the ball courts.
