Arrival, Departure and Transport
The main playground gate will be unlocked at 8:450 am each morning. Teachers will greet pupils at 8.45am. Please drop children off into our care in the morning via the appropriate entrance. Willow (Nursery) 9am at the Nursery outdoor area entrance, Chestnuts (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are collected by Miss Archer on the main playgorund at 8.45am. Oak Class (Years 3-6) are also are collected by Mrs Jones on the main playgorund at 8.45am.
We encourage parents to leave children at 8.45am to encourage independence in the children and allow children to settle to their learning as quicklyas possible.
No children will be released to an adult other than their parent/carer unless we have permission. 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 been given permission from the parent/carer.
Children are collected at the end of the day in the same way as arrival. Class teachers will release children once they can see the appropriate adult on the school playground at the end of the day.
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.
Children booked into Breakfast Club will be greeted by club leader on that day at the main entrance.
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.
