SAFETY NOTICE DURING WORKS
Yard Supervision in the mornings - the school grounds are only supervised from 8.35am in the mornings. Please do not leave your children into the school before this time.
Reminder to pedestrians - The Rosconnell gate entrance will be closed during works, so pupils should enter by the pedestrian entrance beside the main gate for the foreseeable future.
School Car Parking Issues -
Morning: if driving please use the set-down area immediately in front of the school and do not alight from your car. Parents of SEN children who hold a parking permit have two options: drive to the back of the school where the SEN buses park between 8.35am – 8.45am or use the regular drop off zone after 9.00am.
On a wet day, we expect traffic to be very busy. Please feel free to drop children from 8.30am – 9.00am on such mornings. Children can enter through the front door.
Afternoon: The set down area at the front of the school is only for parents of children with SEN who have a parking permit. All other parents must walk into the school
Mobile Phones: IMPORTANT Reminder that children are not be permitted to bring mobile phones to school. Phones will be confiscated from any pupil in possession of a mobile phone on the school campus.
Child Safeguarding and Recording Children on Yard: We are aware that parents are excited to have their children start school and wish to share this with family and friends, but we ask you to be mindful of recording the children and teachers on yard and to respect the privacy of others.
Please ensure to put your child’s name on all Uniforms, Books, Lunch boxes, Sports gear etc
Thank you for your co-operation with the above.
