Travel to and from school - The school encourages children to walk or cycle to school to improve health and fitness and reduce congestion. If you would like your child to cycle to school, you should collect and sign a copy of our cycle policy. Cycles may be kept in the school cycle racks.

Parking - The safety of our children must over-ride all other considerations. Therefore, car parking on the school site is restricted to staff, authorised visitors only or those with a disability permit.

To help ensure your child's safety, please therefore park off site. Parents are kindly asked to observe the restricted parking area surrounding the school and are requested not to park on the yellow zig-zag lines outside the school gates.

Arrival/Collection - Children should enter/exit school through one of the two pedestrian gates on Grange. In the morning, all children should wait on the Key Stage 1 playground until the whistle is blown. Pupils then line up and are collected by their class teacher and enter school through their agreed route.

At home-time, pupils who are collected by parents/carers, are released individually by the class teacher who ensures that children do not leave the playground until they can see the adult who is taking them home. The school must be informed when a different adult is picking a child up from school at home time. If this does not happen the child will not be released.

Children whose parents/carers are late collecting them will be asked to wait in the main foyer by the school office.

Punctuality - Please ensure that your child arrives at school on time so that we can check registers and lunch numbers efficiently and enable your child to settle happily in to their morning lessons.  Any children arriving after 8.55 a.m., for security reasons must be brought to the main entrance and signed in at the main office.
