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. At the end of the day please wait in the designated waiting area on the lower playground, behind the wall. If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know in good time, this avoids any confusion or upset.
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.
