School Arrival

Reception and Key Stage One children should arrive at school between 8.45am and 9am. They must be brought to the Key Stage One playground where a member of the EYFS team will be supervising. At 8.55am the bell will ring and Year 1 and 2 children will be taken to their classrooms. Reception children and parents will be able to go into their classrooms together and get ready for the day.

Key Stage 2 children should arrive on the school yard between 8.45 am and 8.55 am. There will be no supervision by school staff before this time. If parents need to leave their children before these times they are able to use The Learning Tree Out of School Club. Children will be allowed into school from 8.45 am if the weather is inclement.

Collection of Children from School

Parents and careers of children in class R are asked to collect their children from the classroom door at the end of the day in order to ensure a safe hand over.

Children in class 1 and 2 will be brought out onto the KS2 playground at 3.25pm. Parents should wait on the playground (not in the bike shelter). Staff will allow children to go once they are satisfied the appropriate adults are there to collect the children. Children will not be allowed to play on the school equipment at this time.

Parents/carers collecting older children are asked to wait in the yard or outside the school gates.

It is important that parents/carers do not park their cars in the staff car park and we encourage parents/carers not to park in the lay-by which is needed for school buses. We also request that parents/carers do not obstruct the driveways of residents in the village or create a safety hazard by double parking.

Cars can be parked at the Carlton Miniott playing fields. Not only does this avoid congestion outside the school gates, it also ensures that children start the day with a small amount of beneficial fresh air and exercise.
