There are often many questions that parents / carers wish to ask but feel silly in doing so. No question is ever not worth asking so please do contact us, however small your concern or query.
We have tried to list below the most frequently asked questions:
What happens if I am late dropping off / picking up?
In the morning, children go to class after they hear the bell. The gates are then locked. Anyone arriving after this time must sign in at the front office.
Sometimes parents / carers get stuck in traffic and are running late to collect their children. If this is the case, we ask you to phone ahead and let us know. If you are going to be later than 3:10pm, we ask you to organise alternative collection as there may not be staff available to supervise your child.
Where do I park my car?
The school car park is allocated to staff and visitors only.
The community centre car park is available for parent's use. You and your child can then cross the road safely opposite the school entrance. Please do not let your child run ahead to cross the road on their own.
There is very limited parking in Elin Way Road and along High Street. Please DO NOT double park, park on the yellow zig-zags or block entrances to other properties.
We do have a school travel plan for your perusal; please check out the webpage for further information.
Can my child cycle to school?
Yes, scooters and cycles can be used but children must dismount at the edge of the school grounds and walk in the rest of the way. Cycle racks can be found at the front of school whilst scooter pods are available by the front entrances.
Can my child bring a mobile phone to school?
Yes. However, the mobile phone must be switched off as they come on school site and handed in at the front office. It can be collected at the end of the day.
What if my child wants to bring toys / objects into school?
Children often want to bring items into school. However, these are often valuable to the children for sentimental and, sometimes, monetary reasons. When they get misplaced, children are inevitably very upset. In order to minimise the upset, we suggest that children do not bring in anything additional to their school equipment and clothing.
Any personal property that is brought to school is the child's responsibility. Clothing, school bags, lunch boxes, swimming bags etc. should be clearly marked with the child's name.
Can my child bring snacks to eat at break time?
Yes we encourage your child to bring healthy fruit ONLY for snack time.
The School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme (SFVS) provides a free piece of fruit or veg to every 4-6 year-old who attends our school.
