  • The playground gates are open 10 minutes before the start and end of the school day for parents/carers to wait with their children.

 

  • During morning drop off parents of infant children should wait with their children in the playground; whilst our caretaker is always present at the infant gate to ensure children’s safety, the infant children remain the responsibility of the parent/carer.

 

  • During morning drop off a member of staff will always be present at the gate in the junior playground to ensure no school children leave the playground. It is therefore advised that parents who are dropping off children in both infant and junior playgrounds can safely drop junior children into their playground first in the morning and then take younger siblings to the infants and wait with the younger children.
  •  
  • Parents of infant children are respectfully asked not to use the reception outside play area and gate to walk between infant and junior playgrounds internally; we need to keep this area safe and secure for our reception children.

 

  • Children who arrive at school without parents/carers should not arrive at school before 8.45 to avoid them waiting alone outside of school.

 

  • At the end of the day infant children will stay in their classrooms until their teacher sees a carer/parent known for each child. Junior children will be supervised by their teacher in the playground until a carer/parent for each child is recognised by the teacher. Parents with children in both playgrounds are advised to pick up infant children first then walk around and pick up junior children from their playground, where they are able to safely wait with their teacher.

 

  • The playground equipment SHOULD NOT be used by any children at the beginning and end of school day in either the infant or junior playgrounds.

 

  • Scooters, bikes, roller blades etc should not be used or ridden within the playgrounds and should be ‘parked’ at one of the designated places if they are to be left at school during the day.

 

  • With the exception of those children in years 5 and 6 who have written permission on file from their parent/carer to leave school at the end of the school day on their own, all children must be collected from the school playground; children will not be sent to parents/carers waiting outside of the school premises or in parked cars.

 

  • Dogs or other pets are not allowed inside the school grounds, with the exception of Guide Dogs.

 

  • Other than at the start and end of the day, the only access to the school is via the main entrance and all visitors should report to the school Reception.

 

  • In addition to the normal school day, a number of clubs and activities run at other times. Entry and exit from these clubs is via the main school entrance.

 

  • We ask that where collection arrangements change, this is communicated to school either in advance in writing or by telephoning the school as soon as possible; this includes times when a different person will be collecting a child or where there is an unavoidable delay in collecting a child.

Collective Worship

Authentic worship offers pupils, staff and parents the invitation to enter together into the presence of God.  It is never coercive or manipulative but it is central to the life of the school and expresses the ethos and values we share. 

School worship has by law to be a daily, collective act.  While we recognise that, even in church schools, pupils have the right to be withdrawn we would hope that all parents would see it as integral to our life as a community.

Our expectation is that collective worship is a regular and embedded feature of the school’s life and that, through monitoring and evaluation, the impact of it is visible upon the school’s ethos and members of its community.

The doctrines and practices of the Church of England and the tradition of the parish guide the content and form of worship.  We seek to be as inclusive as possible and encourage all members of the school to contribute in a planned and structured fashion to our worship together. Through acts of collective worship, we aim to bring the children’s spirituality and faith into their conscious mind.
