Drop off and Pick up times

Drop off and pick arrangement for September

As you may know, we are having to stagger drop off and pick up times in September to reduce contacts and interactions at the beginning and the end of the day.


We are aware that a whole class of 30 children arriving or departing at the same time would make social distancing between adults and households somewhat difficult and may lead to a large gathering at the school gate. 


To help avoid this, we are asking that the younger year group arrives and leaves first followed by the older year group five minutes later.


This should provide an additional stagger to spread arrivals and departures for children in the same class.


The timings will be as follows :


Year Group

Drop off

Pick up




Year 1



Year 2



Year 3



Year 4



Year 5



Year 6




Morning drop off  
On arrival, parents will need to enter the school site with their child through one of the school gates, drop their child off with the teacher and leave immediately to allow the next set of parents and children to arrive. 

Afternoon pick up
Similar arrangements will apply in the afternoon.  
Parents should arrive at their designated time, collect their child from the teacher and leave immediately to allow the next set of parents to arrive.

We appreciate we are relying on parent/carers being punctual for the system to work. 

If you arrive early, we ask that you wait in your car or outside the school grounds. 


Please be mindful, especially if you have young children, as exit and entry is through either the main gate or car park gate which both open directly onto a road. The purpose for opening both gates is to increase flow and avoid congestion.


We will write to you again a day before school starts to remind you of these arrangements. 


Breakfast Club
Just a reminder that any parents/carers wishing to send their child to Breakfast Club in September, should contact the school and speak to Mrs Rhodes who will book a place for your child.


The cost is £2.50 per session per child.
