Please be on time. Punctuality is an important value for children to learn. The school gate is opened at 8.40 a.m. a member of the SLT will be on the playground. Please do not arrive too early, especially in cold and/or wet weather. 
 
The children may go straight to their classrooms, using the pupil entrance. Members of staff will be in the classrooms to supervise the children from 8.40 a.m. Please try to get your children to school by 8.50 a.m. so that they are in the classroom in good time before registration closes at 9.00 a.m.  
 
With young children, arrangements for collection are vitally important. Make sure they understand them and, should you be delayed, please give us a ring.  
 
At the end of the day, all the children will be escorted to the playground by their class teachers where they can be collected. Foundation children can be collected from their own playground accessed via the pathway off the main path. 
Parents who wish their children to walk home at the end of the school day should let the school know in writing. We would ask that parents ensure their children are supervised once collected. 
Any child not collected by 3.25 p.m. will be returned to the main school office. We urge parents to collect their children at the correct time. If you are delayed in any way please contact the school office. 
 
Scooters and Bikes 
 
The school has both a scooter rack and cycle shelter situated outside the school kitchen. Should your child wish to scooter to school and leave it on site, we would ask that you complete the appropriate form which can be obtained from the school office or on the website. 
Cycling to school is also encouraged but do please check our school policy. Children cycling to school independently need to have participated in a Bikeability course. It is the parents/carers who must decide if a child is competent enough to cycle to school. A cycle pass is required from school.
