JIHIHJJHHHH A few recent incidents have highlighted the need to remind our school community about ‘end of day’ procedures. Although your child/ren may know what is happening, it is vital that we do too. 1) If your child is signed up to take part in an after school club, please could you ensure that you inform the office or relevant member of staff if they are not attending. 2) If your child is going home with another family, please inform either the class teacher or the office. 3) If you are taking another parent’s child home, please let a member of staff know before leaving at the end of the day – there are always staff on the lower playground at this time. 4) Bus children – Please could parents ensure that they are ready to meet their children off the bus when returning home as it is not the driver’s responsibility to make sure that they cross roads safely once getting off the bus. Thank you for your support with these matters.

PLEASE SHUT THE GATE We know that mornings and after school can get rather ‘hectic’, however, please could you ensure that the entrance gate onto the lower playground is closed behind you.

Also, please take care in the car park – another staff member has had their car ‘scraped’ recently, which wasn’t directly reported. If you are ‘blocked in’, please come and speak to us.
