What do parents need to do at the start and the end of each day?

Reception children should be taken to and collected from their outside class door.

Year 1 and 2 enter through the KS1 door and are collected from the greenhouse area or the KS1 class door depending on their class.

Years 3 to 6 are collected from the KS2 door area.

PLEASE NOTE – There are yellow painted lines on the playground in KS1 and 2. Please stand behind these at collection time to allow room for class teachers to bring their classes out safely and to allow room for children and teachers to spot you for collection.

Security – We will only release children to named adults. If you are sending someone different please let us know in the morning or let the school office know during the day. If someone else is coming that the teacher does not know please make sure that they know the password you agreed when you enrolled your child in the school.


Teaching time – the time spent on teaching each week, excluding breaks, lunch and registration is:

22 hours 30 minutes for KS1 children

24 hours and 10 minutes KS2 children.
