Punctuality is very important to us.
There is a member of staff on duty on each playground from 8.40 am. During wet weather teachers will open their classroom doors at 8.40 am. We encourage the children from the beginning to be responsible for their own coats, belongings and lunch money. Pupils should not arrive too early as no responsibility can be accepted for children who arrive before 8.40am. If your child is late for school, please bring him/her to the main entrance by the secretary’s office.
At 3.15 pm, parents should come through the school gates to collect children in years R,1 and 2, from their classrooms. In the new school, children in years 3 and 4 will be escorted downstairs by staff, to meet parents outside. In their pack of information to schools, Worcester County Council Road Safety Unit state that all children under the age of 8 years should always be accompanied to and from school by a responsible adult. Pupils in Years 5 and 6 are allowed to walk home from school without their parents if full written permission is given.
If you collect your child by car at 3.15pm and wait in Coniston Crescent, would you kindly avoid parking in front of the school gate. The police make occasional visits to ensure motorists do not park illegally or obstruct the area. Parking in our school car park and the High School car park is not permitted.
