School Day

Breakfast Club opens at 8.00 am until the children are taken to their classes for the start of the school day. Breakfast is served up until 8.30 am.

 

The school doors open for children at 8.45 am when the first bell sounds and children should go straight to their classrooms where staff are waiting. Please do not drop children off on their own in the playground before this time as they will be unsupervised. Similarly, if it is raining heavily or icy etc please wait until 8.45 am to bring your child/children straight to class as we unable to supervise them beforehand. The second bell will ring at 8.55 am for the start of the school day and registers will then be taken.

We see this extra time as being a very valuable opportunity to allow the practising of basic skills, times tables and handwriting and reading. It also hopefully eases the parking congestion to a degree.

Drop-off and Collection Procedures

We would like to clarify some points about what age children have to be to either walk home or be collected by someone other than their parents - 

Year group

What is permitted?

Year 2 and younger

Must be collected either by parent/guardian or a named person who is 16 years or older.

Years 3, 4, 5 & 6

Can be picked up by an older brother or sister who is at high school. Note: Year 5 and 6 children cannot take a younger brother or sister home without an adult being present.

Years 5 and 6

Can walk home without parents or another adult. (As long as written permission has been received by the school).

For further guidance:

·         All of the above age restrictions should apply to drop-off in the morning as well.

·         If anyone other than the usual people are collecting, you must notify the school in advance.

We are sure you will appreciate that these measures are in place to help safeguard your children. Your support is very welcome in these matters.
