At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged to drop children at the appropriate Key Stage door. A member of staff is at the door to greet the children and to take messages or concerns.

If a parents need to see the class teacher please request either through the School Office or at the Key Stage door

If normal arrangements for collection alter (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset and ensures that all children are collected safely.

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. Alternatively, we have mini-pods for bikes and scooters. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and make sure that neighbours drive ways and access points are not blocked even for a short time.
