At the beginning of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground with their children.  This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school, we want to have good links with all parents.  Collection is from the classroom door.  If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know.  This avoids any confusion or upset.


To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option!  There are lots of benefits: it's healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations.  Alternatively we have bike-racks.  If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.
