All children are provided with a water bottle for Free at the start of each school year.

Drop off and collection
At the beginning and end of the school day parents are welcomed onto the playground. This helps to build a close relationship between home and school - we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements for drop-off or collection need to be altered, e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child, please let us know as this avoids any confusion or upset. Parents for Poppy Class (Our Pre-School) are welcomed into their garden.
Getting to School
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it's healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike racks.
If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and not in front of the school gates.
