Collecting your child from school

EYFS (Reception) finish at 3:30pm each day and will need to be collected from their classroom.

KS1 (Years 1 and 2) finish at 3:45pm.  Children will be released from their classroom or the back door once the teacher sees you.

KS2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) finish at 3:45pm.  The children in year 3 and 4 are escorted onto the playground by their teacher and released once the teacher sees you. The children in year 5 and 6 are escorted to the dining hall by their teacher and released once the teacher sees you.

The playground is busy at home time so try to stand in a similar place each day and when you see your child is next in line, give the teacher a wave so they spot you quickly.  This helps enormously and speeds up the process for everyone!

If somebody different is collecting your child from school, please tell the office. If we have not received notification, the class teacher will not allow your child to leave with them.

Child Absence

If your child is going to be absent from school please ring before 9:00am on the first day.  You will be able to leave a message stating name, class and reason for absence. 

If a specific reason has not been left we may call you back.  When a child is absent from school and no call has been received, we will call you to find out why your child is not in school.

Please ring the absence line on 01279 630 120.
