Carousel goes here …


All children come in through the York Road pedestrian entrance and the school gates open at 8.35am.

The children may be left in the playground under the supervision of staff until they go into class at 8.45am for registration.  Parents may wait with their children in the playground until 8.45am if they wish.

The school gates close at 8.50am and any child arriving after this time will be considered as late.


At the end of the afternoon session, lessons finish at 3.15pm, parents are to come to the playground to collect their child from the class teacher. For health and safety reasons older children in the school are not permitted to collect younger siblings.  The school recognises that unforeseen events may delay parents in the collection of children; in any such cases, please telephone the school as soon as possible to alert staff to the delay so that the child can be reassured and supervised.

There is a pink slip situated in the office to use if your child is going home with another adult.  This slip must be completed for any occasion when your child is not being collected by their usual parent or carer.

Teachers are available to talk briefly and informally with parents/carers when children depart from school.
