Parents are a vital link to the work of the school. It is essential that children see parents and teachers working well together for their benefit. Teachers, however, are often busy preparing for the children first thing in the morning and sometimes have meetings or pre-arranged appointments with parents after school. It is therefore better for both the teacher and yourselves if you make an appointment.
The Head teacher or Deputy Head teacher will make every effort to see you immediately if they can, but they may be involved in dealing with something else. Again, it is best if you can make an appointment. You can leave a message with the school secretary, who will contact you by telephone.
Our school site is secure and you will need to buzz either the vehicular or pedestrian gate to gain access. All visitors to the school, including parents, are asked to report to reception first. Anyone needing to walk around the school is asked to wear a visitor’s sticker (Green for those who have an enhanced DBS check and Red for those who do not) so that everyone knows they are on official business. Other members of staff will challenge anyone not wearing a badge or those with a red badge who are not accompanied by a member of staff.
The Gates to both entrances are briefly unlocked to welcome children and parents at the start of the day from 8:30am – 8:45am and also at the end of the day from 3:00pm – 3:15pm. Children that have not entered the building by 8:40am will need to come into school via the main office where they will be asked to sign in for registration purposes.
