Parents/Carers in the playground:

We are very happy to be able to open the playground once again to parents this year following it's closure over the last eighteen months.

Please could you make sure you do not go past the basketball posts so that there is an area for parents/carers and an area for the pupils to line up safely and staff are able to line them up or dismiss them safely. 

 

Use of the Fitness Trail and Trim Trail:

Parent/Carers MUST make sure pupils and their siblings do NOT play on the equipment before or after school - thank you.

 

Dogs are not allowed to enter onto any of the school grounds - this includes the driveway (which is an exit only).

 

Thank you for working in partnership with school to make sure the start and end of day is as safe and smooth as possible.
