Where do I drop off and collect my child(ren) from?

From 8.45am, pupils enter the school either through the main gate adjacent to the school office or through the back field gate. A member of staff will be on duty at both of these entrances and will direct your child onto the main playground. At 8.55am, the bell is rung and the children line up to come into school. At the end of the day, all class teachers will hand over children via the main gate. 

Speaking to your child's teacher(s)

The focus of teachers in the morning will be to meet and greet the children and bring them into school safely – feeling positive and ready to start their day of learning.  Whilst teachers are always keen to hear any messages, thoughts or concerns you have, this is therefore not the best time to try to speak to your child’s teacher. It is better to try and catch your child's teacher at the end of the day. 


Important or urgent messages can be given to members of the school office team and appointments to discuss something with your child’s teacher can be arranged via the office also either in person, by telephone or via email.
