Late Arrival

If you arrive once the class entrance doors have closed you will have to sign your child into the 'Late Gate' at the main Reception door, being late can be very disruptive for your child and their classmates, please make every effort to arrive on time.

Collecting Children

If there is going to be a change from the parent/carer who normally picks up your child, can you please inform the class teacher directly.
