The School Day


Getting to and from school

Where possible, walking to and from school is definitely the best option, it is healthier than travelling by car. If you do travel to school by car, please remember to park away from the school and be considerate to our neighbours on Westmorland Avenue.


Drop off and pick up from school

We encourage all parent, carers and grandparents onto our playgrounds when dropping off and collecting their children. This helps build up close relationships between families and staff as we want to have good links with all our parents and carers.
