​Where to I drop off / pick up my child?

Your child will need to be on the  Playground  between 8.50am and 9am. A member of staff will be there to supervise your child and be a point of contact should you need to talk to us.
At hometime, the children will be released from the hall into the playground at 3.30pm. Parents are asked to wait in the playground to collect their children.​
If you are late to school, please take your children to the main office. If you wish to pick your child up early for an appointment, please go to the main office.

How do I pay dinner money and other money?

Our school dinners are now provided by Entrust Catering Services. School dinners should to be paid for in advance. You may pay daily, or pay for several meals in advance e.g. weekly, or half-termly if you wish. If a meal has not been paid for, we will send a slip to remind you.

Money can be handed in to the school office, or sent in with your child. Please put money in a sealed envelope with your child's name, amount and what the money is for.
