The Beginning and the End of the School Day

Leaving your child at the beginning of the school day;

Parents of Foundation Stage children are welcome to come into the hall to help their child change their reading books and get ready for the day.

As your child becomes more confident we request that you leave them in the playground to come into school by themselves. This helps with developing independent skills, reduces congestion and helps lessen the risk of strangers being around school.

Nursery children are welcome to enter through the main front doors

Meeting your child at the end of the school day;

All children are collected from the playground unless there are special circumstances.

Children arriving or being collected at other times of the day must come through the main front doors and check in at Reception.


Parking is always a problem, particularly at the end of the day.

Parents may use the Church Rooms’ car park just 100 metres from school. Please do not park on the yellow zigzag lines as they are there for the children’s safety and the school buses use this space at the beginning and end of each day.

The safety of children must be our major concern and thoughtless parking is always a problem,
