Afternoon playtimes

Children in Y1 to Y6 have an afternoon break which is from 2:15pm - 2:30pm.

Drop-off and collection

Children come into school and leave again through their classsroom doors. An adult will be available on each door to welcome the children as they arrive and to pass on or receive messages from parents. We encourage all parents to get to know their child's teacher and the other adults in school as this helps to build up a close relationship between home and school and ensures that when issues do arise they can be dealt with as quickly as possible.

We will only release children at the end of the day into the care of their parents/ carers or other responsible adults who have been made known to us. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) you must let us know. If we are ever in any doubt about collection arrangements for a child, we will always err on the side of caution and keep the child in our care until parents/ carers have been contacted.

Getting to school

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. 

If you do need to travel by car, please be aware that you will not be able to use the school car park and that there are parking restrictions around the school for the safety of all the children and their families.
