We are happy for parents to accompany their child into the classroom when children first begin school. However, as pupils progress through the school and the older children develop skills of independence, we encourage pupils to leave their parents at the gate.
We participate in the ‘Free Fruit Scheme’ and fresh fruit is available for every child in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 at morning break and milk is available for children under 5. Pupils are also given free access to drinking water at all times. Breaktime is at 10.40am – 11am.
At the end of the school day (3.15pm) all children must be collected from inside the school gate. Children in Years 4 to 6 may walk home unaccompanied on receipt of written permission from home.
Parents using cars are asked to park well clear of the zigzag markings and in such a way that it will not cause a hazard to other road users or inconvenience to local residents.
