School Morning & Afternoon Procedures

Updated Sept 2023

It is vital for the safety of pupils, staff and other adults that we all adhere to the following arrangements for bringing pupils to school in the morning and collecting them at the end of the day.

Arriving in the Morning

INFANTS – The Infant Gate will open between 8.50am and 9am – parents/carers can walk their children to the infant yard.  

There is no need to arrive any earlier than 8.50am.

JUNIORS – All Juniors should enter school via the Junior gate between 8.50am and 9am.

Gates are locked at 9am, therefore late arrivals, both juniors and infants, should arrive via the main reception entrance.  There will be no access for pupils to the school via reception before 9.00am.

At the end of the school day – Infants

INFANTS can be collected from the infant playground at 3pm, where they will be waiting with their class teachers.

The Infant gate will be open from 2:55pm. Once your child has been collected, please leave via the infant gate as soon as you can and do not go to the Junior yard.


At the end of the school day – Juniors

The gate at the junior end of the school will remain locked until 3.10pm.  Parents/carers are welcome to walk down the ramp and collect their children from outside their classes.

We ask you very kindly not to crowd around the gate onto the pavement at the end of the day.  Please keep the area around the gate clear to enable pupils and parents/carers to exit the school grounds safely.  Please do not feel offended if you are asked to move to clear the gate area.


Any visitors to the school must report to reception immediately upon arrival.  If you wish to meet your child’s teacher, you must come to reception in the first instance.  Your request will be dealt with by the receptionist.
