Back to school times and reminders

Drop off


Please do not arrive before or after these times

  • Nursery – 9am (at the Nursery gates, exiting through the main playground).
  • 08:45 – Cedar, Sycamore and Cherry classes. 
  • 08:55  – Willow, Rowan and Chestnut classes.
  • 09:05 – Beech, Ash and Oak classes.

If you have more than one child, the pick up and drop off time will always be the earlier one. 

DROP OFF points in the morning

  • Large Green gate (parents who arrive from Barn Lane/Greenway Lane direction);
  • Small Green gate  (parents who arrive from all other directions);
  • Moor Lane gate (Cedar and Sycamore class only).

Important points:

  • I am asking you all to avoid driving if at all possible. This is extremely important to avoid crowding on the pavements around the school. 
  • Only one adult is allowed at drop off per family. Adults must wear face coverings.
    • Please do not congregate around the school premises after drop-off. 
    • Maintain social distancing at all times. 
      • There will be markings on pathways to encourage this.  
      • Please do not stand directly outside the gate – the markings will start a couple of metres from the gates.
  • Pupils will enter the site without their adult.
    • For Reception pupils, or those with more need, one parent will be allowed onto the school site. Please maintain social distancing at all times. 
  • If your child is in year 5 or 6, and they are suitably mature and trained, please encourage them to walk to school on their own.

On entering school, your child will be directed to line up outside their classroom.  A member of staff will supervise their handwashing and direct them to their seats.

  • 15:15 – Cedar, Sycamore and Cherry
  • 15:25 – Willow, Rowan and Chestnut
