Reminder – School Opening/Closing times

Dear Parents/Carers

I am writing to remind you of the opening and closing times of the school.

The school opens at 8.50 a.m. If you arrive before 8.50 a.m. your child will not be able to come into school so please do not leave until a member of staff has collected your child. Unless you have made alternative arrangements your child should say goodbye to you in the enclosed outside area. Staff are always available to take children to class.

The school day ends at 3.10 p.m.  We are unable to release children before this time without an alternative arrangement in place.  Please wait for your child in the enclosed outside area.  The member of staff on duty will organise bringing them from class.  The administration staff will not call for them unless previously agreed.

Please keep the entrance gate closed at all times.

Children should only be late for school or collected early in exceptional circumstances.  It is important to remember that even if children are missing a few minutes each day it can make a big difference to their progress.

If you wish to make alternative arrangements for your child due to exceptional circumstances please see Allison or Verity in the Office as soon as possible to complete a form.

These systems are in place to ensure the safety of the pupils and the smooth and efficient running of the classes.

Could I remind you that school should be informed as soon as possible if your child is absent due to sickness, medical appointments etc. Please also send in a letter or write in your child’s Home/School book on their return confirming the reason for their absence.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely

Laura Clarke

Head Teacher
