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. Staff are on playground duty from 8.45am at both schools every morning. Children at the junior school can be left with staff from 8.45am on the playground. We would ask that parents of infant school children stay with children until the bell rings and signals the start of the school day.
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 or in front of driveways of our local residents. The Junior school car park on Conyers Avenue has parking for parents to use before and after school. Please use the designated bays and do not block other parents in by leaving cars parked outside of the bay areas. The Infant school car park is for staff only and is 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.
Please find below some additional information for families:
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 Learn to Ride sessions. 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.
