You are here: Parents - The School Day

To support the safe arrival and departure of children to and from school, there will be staggered start times for each class. This is to keep you, your child, staff and members of the community safe. It is vitally important that you arrive for your time slot that you are given, we must avoid a gathering of parents on the school site and surrounding pathways.

Drop off times and doors

All children and families will enter school through the current Year 1 gate. This will be ENTRANCE only. Once on site there will be a one way system that takes families and parents up the steps, around the edge of the playground and down the steps/ ramp near to the year 2 classrooms. If you have children in Year 2, you can then drop children off here. You will then continue back along the path (on the paving slabs) towards Year 1. If you have children in Year 1 you will drop off at Year 1 here. You will then turn right through the gate towards Reception.

If you have children in Reception you will drop them here. ALL children and families will exit through the Reception gate (near Nursery). The ENTRANCE and EXIT gate will be open from 8:40am. Times below outline the staggered start times to avoid too many families on site at once and avoid congestion on the surrounding pathways.

As children arrive at the school door, they will sanitise their hands and go straight in to school. No queuing, waiting or congestion around the doors please. As I have said previously, where possible only one family member to bring to school.
