Drop-off and Collection
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents can enter the playground, this helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents.


In the morning, the black gate half way up the drive will open at 8.40 at which time both KS1 and 2 children and parents, can walk in and parents exit via the bottom gate. KS2 children will walk across the playground where there will be an adult at the bottom of the steps who guide KS2 children to the appropriate classroom.

KS2 can also enter school via the top door (close to the staff carpark).This gate will also open at 8.40.

The gates will close at 8.55am but registers close at 8.50am. This means if your child arrives after this time, they will be marked as late.


KS1 children to walk in via the black gate with their parents and go straight to the KS1 building; parents wait at the bottom and children walk up the path and into the building independently.

There will be an adult at both the blue and black gates for safeguarding reasons and also a number of adults supporting KS1 children and another for the KS2 children.


At the end of the day, we ask that parents/carers continue to line up in for their child's class behind the wall on the playground. We will then dismiss the children one at a time and we will maintain the one way system too. It feels so much more secure this way. 

Getting to School
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it is healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and considerably.
