END OF DAY HANDOVER
All parents/carers enter the school grounds from the Brighton Road gate from 3:10pm. Gates close at 3:20pm.
Please wear face coverings, queue patiently and follow the one way system.
Years 2, 3, 4, 5 and yard.6 can then be picked up straight from the top yard.
Children from Nursery, Reception and Year 1 can be collected from outside of their classrooms, just off the bottom yard.
A parent or responsible adult must collect KS1 and EYFS children from the designated areas. If there is a change of adult the school must be informed. If the school has not been informed then the child will not be allowed to leave the school premises until permission has been sought from the parent.
No one under the age of 16 will be accepted as an appropriate adult to pick up children from EYFS to Year 4.
Year 5 and 6 children may only walk home alone once written permission from a parent/carer is given to the class teacher. We ask all parents to please wait patiently while staff release children through our procedures, in turn.
Children of whatever age who are required to leave the school premises during the day, i.e. medical appointments, must be collected and signed out by a parent or responsible adult, via the main office.
