Please adhere to the one-way system that is currently in place, which is entrance only at St Mary’s Lane and exit via the Corbets Tey alleyway.

Once your child / children has been dropped off / collected you must leave the site promptly.

At the end of the day, one of your children will remain behind with their class teacher to do the same. For the parents who have requested a later collection Year 2 can be collected from Robin class, Year 1 from the computer suite and Reception from Hedgehog class. To avoid congestion, only one parent is permitted to drop off and collect their child. You are not able to collect children any earlier than the time stated above, nor drop them off at a time later than is stated as this will reduce teaching time.

Please note it is not an option to wait around in the playground.

Parents should adhere to social distancing and wear face coverings if appropriate; however, we cannot insist on this. If queueing then please remain 2m apart outside and please stick to your designated slot. Please be considerate of pedestrians, making sure you are not obstructing the pavement. Unfortunately, we have received a few complaints about parents blocking the pavements in large groups after drop-off and we would ask parents to be considerate of other pedestrians.
