Update of Drop off and Collection Proceedures

Thank you for your patience and understanding today whilst we worked out the safest procedure for our drop off and collection times. We would like you to read the following carefully so we can ensure the safety of parents and pupils alike.

Drop Off

If your child’s drop off time is 8:35 please wait, socially distanced, against the school fence at your allocated gate, if your child has 8:45 drop off and you are a little early please wait across the road to be called forward by the member of staff on the gate.  Pupils will be invited through the school gate at their allocated time so please try and adhere to these.  This applies to both Leen Mills lane and Bishop’s Way. Please bear in mind that we have small roads around our school and road safety is paramount.


Pick Up

Please collect your child from the allocated gate at the youngest child’s or earliest time. Staff will ensure that siblings are together with the youngest child or the earliest time at that allocated gate.  If you are unsure please ring the office.



We appreciate that the allocated gate is not some parents preferred gate, however we know that you understand that the safety of our pupils is paramount.
