The Perry Road gates are open for children from 8.45am for children to come into school. Whilst we are aware that some older children come to school by themselves, can you please not send children onto the school site unaccompanied before that time.

School starts promptly at 9.00am.

 

Families who have nursery children only, can enter school from Nursery entrance on Gamston Crescent. If you have older children in school, please bring these to school first, via Perry Road, then enter through the lower doors of the KS1 building to take your nursery children.

 

The main gates are locked at 9.15am. Entry to the school premises is via Perry Road only during the day.

 

At the end of the day, Foundation and KS1 children going to The Lime Trees will be collected by a member of staff and escorted to the club. KS2 children go to the club themselves.

 

Both Perry Road gates and the rear school gates will be opened at 3.15pm for the quick exit from the site. The rear gates will be closed and locked at 4.00pm.

 

Children being collected from after school club activities will be taken to either the playground or the main office area for collection by parents when the clubs finish. This will be communicated by the club organiser.

 

Please telephone the school if you are going to be late collecting your child. Children being collected late will wait with a member of staff either in their classroom or in the office area.

 

If, for any reason, a person coming to collect children other than yourself, can you please let the school office, or The Lime Trees know as soon as possible.  If we do not recognise the person collecting your child(ren) we will not allow the child to go with them.

 

The main gates are closed and locked at 4pm. Entry to the school site, for the collection of children from Thr Lime Trees is via the Perry Road entrance, left side. Parent/Carers must say who they are and which child they have come to collect when asked.

 

During the warmer months, families are very welcome to stay and use the play equipment on the KS1 yard, at your own risk. All we ask is that you vacate the equipment before 4.30pm so that The Lime Trees can use it if the KS2 yard is occupied with after school activities. Can you also ensure that your children do not mix with The Lime Trees club children, even if they are registered with the club, as the club are not legally responsible for those children.
