Should any parent/guardian be unavoidably detained please telephone school and let us know, this helps to prevent young children from becoming distressed. Staff are involved in after-school activities and meetings most evenings so punctuality other than in emergencies is appreciated.

Please inform the school if your child is being met by a different adult, as we shall not allow him/her to leave the premises otherwise; if the arrangement is on a regular basis please let us have the information in writing, a form is available from the foyer or below. If a child is being collected by a taxi service or Nursery in order to attend an after-school care club, it is essential that this information is given to us in writing.
