New arrangements for Years 1, 2, 4 and Sunbeam
We have been reviewing our start and end of day arrangements for children using the main gate.
I have asked that the main gate only will open from 8.30. This gives parents of children in Years 1,2, 4 and Sunbeam a 25 minute window to arrive in school. As this is our busiest gate, we hope that this will ease the congestion on the pavement. We will open the school from 8.45am, so please be aware that until that time you are responsible for the supervision and safety of your child. To avoid families bunching up together can I ask you to stand with your children in the following areas:
Year 4 and Sunbeam: to gather on the grass area to your right as you enter the school.
Year 1: to walk around so you are opposite the Year 1 classrooms.
Year 2: to gather in the area just inside the gate - leaving plenty of room for Year 1 parents to pass by.
We will be opening the field gate for Reception parents only at 8.45.
If you are able to walk to school please consider doing so. It is great exercise for all the family and will help reduce the parking congestion in Galliard Road and the surrounding area. Please can I also ask all parents to be considerate to local residents and to NOT park in their private driveways or across them.
We will continue to monitor our start and end of day arrangements over the coming weeks and make further adjustments as needed.
