Drop-off and collection

At the beginning and the end of the day, parents are encouraged into the playground where they will be met by Mrs Austin-Thomas and Mrs Turner. They are available to discuss any issues regarding school and home – we enjoy good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know at the office. This avoids any confusion or upset.

Leave your child at the school door, this will allow them to develop their independent and organisation skills.

Coming to school

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! We have a bike shed if your child would like to cycle however, we do ask that children walk across the playground with their bikes for the safety of everyone around. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and away from the school gates.
