Arrival, Departure and Transport

COVID-19 Drop-off and Pickup Arrangements

*Please note, arrival and departure during Covid will be different with staggered starts and finishes. Collection and drop-offs will be from the car park opposite the school. See the downloadable document below for details. Please remain in your car until teaching staff indicate that your child's group should line up. This will help keep your child safe, minimising mixing between bubbles.


* These arrangements have been suspended during the COVID pandemic.

The main playground gate will be unlocked at 8:45 am each morning. Please drop children off into our care in the morning via the appropriate entrance. Willow (Nursery) and Chestnuts (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are admitted through their class doors. Oak Class (Years 3-6) enter via their classroom door. We encourage parents to leave children at the door and not come in unless absolutely necessary, both to encourage independence in the children and to avoid congestion in the corridors.



* These arrangements have been suspended during the COVID pandemic.

No children will be released to an adult other than their parent/carer unless we have permission in writing from them. Verbal permission may be approved in exceptional circumstances in an emergency, but only if the approval has been give by the headteacher or senior teacher, in her absence. Children will not be released to other adults even if they are 'trusted' members of the community e.g. PTA members who have a DBS, or if they are known to be 'good friends' with the family, unless we have confirmation in writing from the parent/carer of the child being released.

Children are collected at the end of the day in the same way as arrival, via ttheir classroom door. Class teachers will release children once they can see the appropriate adult.

Pupils booked in to after school clubs are sent to the appropriate room by their teacher and a register is taken by the club leader. Pupils attending after school clubs will be dismissed by the club leader at the end of the session and handed over to parents.

It is imperative that parents keep their emergency contact details up to date so that staff and club leaders can keep parents informed of any changes necessary to arrival and departure arrangements.

Please contact the office and let us know of any changes to your normal departure arrangements, such as if a child is going home with another parent and child for a play date.
