IMPORTANT - Late Collection from School

IMPORTANT - Late Collection from School
We have an increasing number of children who are not being picked up on time at the end of the school day. This naturally causes a great deal of distress for the children.
Lessons finish at 3.15pm and teachers will be on duty in the playground until 3.25pm. After that time, children are expected to be off site unless they are at an after school club.
We understand that on rare occasions parents may be unavoidably delayed. If this happens then please telephone the school office before 3.15pm to let us know what time you will be arriving or who will be collecting your child.
Children not collected by 3.30pm will be accommodated at our wraparound provision, ‘Acorn to Oaks’ to ensure they are safe and happy. This may incur a charge of £8 for parents.
Please do NOT come to reception after 3.30pm to collect your child if you are late. Acorn to Oaks is situated in the Dining Hall and the entrance can be found by the zebra crossing on Ashford Road.
Can we also ask that if you are phoning to let us know your child is being picked up by someone other than yourself, you do it before 3.15pm? The office gets very busy at this time and it isn’t always possible to get a message to the teacher straight away.
