Points to note: 

  • The bell rings to signal the start of the school day at the appropriate time. Children may come into school from 8.45 am At the end of the afternoon parents wait for their children who are dismissed by their classteachers when the bell rings.
  • Children should not arrive at school before 8.40a.m. as we cannot guarantee supervision before this time. They also need to be picked up promptly at 3.15p.m.  Any special circumstances which result in children arriving earlier or staying later than these times should be brought to the notice of the Headteacher in writing.
  • Any children allowed by parents to be in the school playground before 8.40 a.m. are there at their parents’ own risk and neither the school nor the LEA will take responsibility in the event of an accident.
  • At the end of the school day children are dismissed by their classteacher. Parents of children in the infants are invited to wait in the infant playground and staff will do their utmost to ‘watch children out’ to the person collecting them. Parents of children in Year 3 should wait at the front of school and again the class teacher will see them out. Parents of children in Year 4 are invited to wait in the junior playground whilst parents of children in Years 5 and 6 should wait outside the junior school gate. All children are reminded of their responsibility to keep themselves safe and are expected to follow the teacher’s instructions and come back into school if the adult they are expecting isn’t there to collect them. Please let us know immediately if there are any changes to the normal arrangements for collecting your child.
  • We would prefer it if all children were collected by a responsible adult but understand that some parents of children in the juniors allow their children to walk home by themselves.  Again these children do so at their parents’ own risk.
