The End of the School Day

Children are dismissed at 3.20pm.  They are released to their parents/carer outside their classrooms.  If parents are not waiting children will go to the office and wait with an adult until they are collected. Children must be collected by an adult known to the staff.

Please inform the office manager if a different adult is collecting your child on a particular day. If you have a regular arrangement for another adult i.e. child minder, grandparent to collect your child please ask the office manager for a child collection form.
