  It is a legal duty of Parents/ Carers to ensure your child attends school regularly and punctually.

School finishes at 3:25 p.m. (1.10 p.m. Fridays) and it is expected that parents/ carers make the appropriate arrangements for their child / children to be collected promptly.

Your child should know who is collecting them at hometime - If someone else is collecting your child, you must inform the school. The children are told to come back into school and sit outside of the school office if the person collecting them is late. Y4 & 5 children must be collected from the Junior School playground. Y3 pupils are collected from the 'back' Y3 door facing the Infant Playground and Y6, who are not walking home alone, from the office door near the fire escape/ bike park next to the Infant School playground.

Please do not be late at the end of the school day. Frequent late collections will result in you being charged childcare at a rate of £10 per 20mins or part thereof.

If a child is not collected at the end of the school day (3:25 p.m./ 1.10 p.m. Fri) and we have had no contact / cannot contact the person(s) with Parental Responsibility, we will contact the Children’s Information and Advice Service after one hour.
