1. No parents will be allowed into the premises during drop-off and pick-up times.

Early Years, Years 1 and 2

  1. EYFS and Key Stage 1 students will remain in the waiting hall when they arrive. There will be one teacher or assistant from EYFS or Key Stage 1 in the waiting hall every day from before 7.30 until after 7.55, who will supervise these children.
  2. As EYFS and Key Stage 1 children arrive, the teacher supervisor will call EYFS reception and notify them. A second EYFS or Key Stage 1 teacher or assistant will then shuttle between the indoor play area in EYFS and the waiting hall, constantly bringing in children as they arrive.
  3. All EYFS and key Stage 1 children gather in the indoor play area of EYFS between 7.30 and 7.55, when they will be taken to their respective classes by their teacher or assistant.
  4. At the end of the school day, the person responsible for the waiting hall will call EYFS reception, and the receptionist or another dedicated person will bring the children to the waiting hall to hand them over to parents. This is done because EYFS parents do not have a set pick-up time.
  5. For Key stage 1, they will finish at 15.00 unless they have clubs. Teachers and assistants will bring their classes directly to the waiting hall, where parents will pick them up between 15.00 and 15.10.

Year 3 and up                               

  1. All students who do not come on the buses, enter the waiting hall from the outside. They can come from 7.30, but not earlier. We expect only few students to arrive between 7.30 and 7.45.
  2. From 7.45, all students from year 3 and up can leave the waiting hall and make their way directly to their classroom.
  3. Students from year 3 and up who arrive between 7.45 and 7.55 go directly to their respective classrooms.


All students should arrive at school by 7.55 am.


  1. Year 3 and Year 4 students go into the waiting hall to be picked up.

Year 5 and Year 6 line up in front of the building as last year, and children are released as parents or caretakers are identified. If the weather is inclement, all Key Stage 2 students will be taken to the waiting hall. Parents must pick them up from 15.15 – 15.25, unless they have clubs or other activities.

  1. Secondary students are allowed to leave the building individually at the end of the school day.
  2. Students who are not picked up on time, will be kept in the waiting hall under the supervision of the person in charge. Board games will be provided, and they can also do homework.


  1. Children who have clubs will be taken to the waiting hall for handover by their monitors/teachers after the club finishes.
