Parents, we need your urgent co-operation regarding road safety when dropping and collecting you children.   Please do not stop in front of the gates.  The buses and staff must be able to enter and leave without difficulty.  Should you park here and your car gets damaged by the bus, the school will not be held responsible for the repairs.

Please try and drop your child before 07:25.  The bell rings at 07:30.   No pupil is allowed to be late!  It is your responsibility to be on time. School hours: Monday – Thursday 07:30 – 13:30

Names of late arrivals will be noted and after the third offence the child will be put in detention which takes place on a Friday directly after school.
