Extension News

The foundations have been checked and things are looking good.  A pre start meeting has been held and the building work will begin on Wednesday 4th January 2017 with an end date of 21st April 2017.  There will be a temporary driveway across the field from the main road for vehicles and all items of building materials etc. will be stored on the lower playground.  All building works will be securely cordoned off as the safety of our children and school community is paramount.

There will be new, temporary arrangements for entering and leaving school from the beginning of January and we ask for your co-operation and patience at this time.  Thank you.

Plans are available in school for you to see.

New Entry / Exit Arrangements

From January 2017 there are new arrangements for entry and exit of school.  Please refer to the FAQs sent home this week for your information and also the new amended interim Arrival and Collection Policy which is on the website.  There will be no access to the playground from the right hand school gate.

Entry into school in the morning

Breakfast club children enter as usual through the front door. Bikes and scooters to be left at the front on the grass in the racks provided.  No scooters or bikes are allowed through the gates and on the playground.  This applies to school children and sibings. Other children should arrive by 8.45 am when the doors of their classrooms open. We do not expect children to arrive before this time unless they are accompanied by an adult who remains with them until 8.45am.

Meerkats and Sea Otters enter school through the door to the Sea Otters classroom.

Please note there is no waiting in this area just outside the door.

Bees and Bears class please follow the path and walk across the front of the school past reception and down the side in to the classrooms. The left-hand gate near the car park will be used for the Bees and Bears for entrance and exit for next term. There will be no access through the school car park gates at any time for parents/carers and children.

We expect children to arrive promptly for the opening of the classroom doors at 8.45am.  The gates will be locked at 8.55am and any children arriving after that time must enter school through the front door via reception and be signed in.


At the end of the school day please note children, when dismissed, are the responsibility of the parents / carers who are collecting them.  Children are expected to remain with their adult who is collecting them and NOT go onto the play equipment or the field.   Once again, no bikes or scooters through the gates.

Please contact Mrs de Looze if you have any further questions.
