Collection from the front entrance of our school is not permitted without prior arrangement this avoids unnecessary congestion for pupils who have mobility issues and leave via the front entrance. 

Please ensure your child knows how they are getting home and avoid last minute changes to their collection routine. The class teacher needs to know how your child is getting home as they are the ones that dismiss them at the end of the day.
