Gates open at 8:30 for parents/carers of these children only. Registration will be at 8:40. 

Gates will open just before 3:05 children in EYFS, Y1.

EYFS will be collected from their playground. Y1 children will be collected from outside classrooms. There are white dot markers all around the perimeter of the playground for parents to wait. The teachers will bring all the children out to you.



Y2, Y3, Y4, Y5, Y6

Access through the park side gate and church side gates will be from 8:40. Please do not arrive before this time as this may cause a build up around the gates. Y4 and Y6 pupils who do not have younger siblings should continue to use the Large Church Road gate.

Registration will be at 8:50.

Access will be from just after 3:10. Please do not arrive too early.

Y2 parents/ carers can use the line of white dots around the outside of the building to wait for children. This will allow space for others to pass by using the one-way system.

Y3 and Year 5 parents using the park side gates should follow the one -way system to the classroom. To avoid congestion at the end of the building, we have assigned an additional waiting area for Mr Brawn’s class. Other parents should keep to their right as they turn the corner. There are yellow markings to help you.

Y4 and Y6 parents should again use the large Church Road gates. Y4 children will be brought to the playground to meet parents. Parents should use the yellow socially distanced dots around the perimeter of the playground.

Speech and Language Provision

Children arriving by taxi will be met at the gate near the white ATC building by staff members. Children arriving with parents should also meet there at 8:40

Children will be taken to the ATC gate by our staff.

If you are using the small gate behind the church, please be careful if you cross the grass and be mindful that parents will be coming the other way and keep to the grass, if at all possible.
