Arrival to and departure from school 

Only one parent/carer is asked to accompany/collect pupils to/from school and parents/carers are asked not to loiter on the school grounds. In/out access points and a one way system (see map below)  will be employed to support a steady flow of traffic. When on school grounds we ask that you follow social distancing guidelines. The systems for drop off and collection are in place to limit mixing and spread of the virus, we ask parents/carers to please drop off and collect children on time. All arrangements will be reviewed regularly and may be altered according to need and latest guidance. Staff will be supporting you in the safe and smooth arrival and collection of pupils.
