Currently, we have staggered the end of the school day to minimise the number of parents gathered at the school gate and keep the school community safe.

We also strongly recommend wearing a face covering when you drop and pick your child as you see the school adults doing. We want everyone in the school community to remain healthy and safe.

 

After school

The teachers see all children safely into the care of parents or other named adults. Only Year 5 and 6 children are allowed to go home unescorted, with written permission from their parents. If collecting arrangements are changed please inform the school.

 

School closure

If the school has to close due to bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, for a short duration of time,  please see below as to what will happen:

 

If the children are in school when we decide to close:

  • We will contact you by text or phone and a message will go on our website. 

 

If school is already closed at the time the decision is made:

  • We will contact you by text.
  • A message will go on the front page of our website.
