School Gates and School Access

The school gates will be opened for parents/cars each day in the afternoon at 2.50pm.  Please do not arrive to use the carpark before this time.

We are unable to open the gates earlier as the school day is still in progress with forest school and other outside activities running around the site therefore we are unable to allow cars and parents in during that time.  This is for the safety of the children and so we do not disrupt the school day while it is in progress.

Could we please ask that visits and calls are made to the school office between 8.30 – 9.30 or 2.50 – 4.00 pm unless urgent. The hours in-between, when school is in progress the office is a working office only and not an open reception area.

We understand at times it is necessary to use the visitor toilet, however could we politely ask that this is only used if completely necessary as again school is in progress or after school clubs are running and as such we need to be aware of all visitors within the school and on site, especially during busy periods.  This becomes difficult to monitor if we have a large volume of visitors/parents in the school at these times. We want to ensure that the school day runs smoothly and that the site is kept as safe as possible for the children during the school day.

Thank you for your understanding and help with the above, it is appreciated.
