Drop off and Pick up
We recognise that the start and end of the school day can be extremely busy. As a result, we encourage children to walk or cycle to school.
If you use a car to drop your children off we would request that you are considerate to the residents living in the area. Please do not park on yellow lines, in front of driveways or in the school car parks. These are for staff only and are always extremely full. We are committed to keeping everyone safe so request that you follow the rules we set out in order to avoid any accidents.
If children arrive late to school they should enter the school via the main entrance accompanied by an adult. Entrance via the main offices allows us to register them to ensure they are accounted for and safe.
End of the Day
Children exit the buildings onto the school playgrounds. Staff are on duty to ensure that children are collected. If for unseen circumstances you are unable to pick up your child or are going to be late, please contact the school office as soon as possible so we can let your child know. Children are encouraged to wait with the duty teachers if they are unsure of arrangements.
We have a bike shed at both the Infant and the Junior sites for storing bikes and scooters during the school day. An opportunity is provided for cycle training for children in KS2. We take part in a number of cycling events throughout the school year including: Bike to school breakfasts and Dr Bike. We promote the use of cycle helmets for children and adults riding to and from school.
Wherever possible, we encourage children to walk or cycle to school to help them stay fit and to reduce congestion around the school. We hold a number of events throughout the year designed to encourage healthy lifestyles and use of environmentally friendly transport.
