Due to the current situation in school, there have been a number of changes to our usual school day - please see the changes below.
The School Day
To make sure that we are reducing the corwding of adults around the entrances and ensure that parents are able to remain socially distanced, we are now using all 3 entrances to school on a staggered entry and exit. Can we please ask that all parents adhere to the current social distancing rules and stay within thier time slots.
The three entrances to school are
The Foundation Stage
- The Foundation Stage entrance (off Mount Pleasant Road)
- The main gate (off Mount Pleasant Road)
- The Out Of School Club Gate (through the staff car park by the Church)
The Foundation Stage have a separate entrance for the school through the small gate on the left hand side of the site ( situated on Mount Pleasant Road).
In the Foundation Stage we have have two time slots for the two carpets.
The doors open from:
