The latest COVID - 19 information for parents

School Timings

As of Monday 15th June, we are changing our drop off and collection times for pupils currently attending school.

Pupils can be brought to the playground between 08:50 and 09:10 and can be collected between 15:00 and 15:15.

Please continue to observe the one way route around the school grounds.

School one way system


The one way system is for dropping your children off at school and collecting them again. All parents must follow the one way system - there can be no exceptions. Also, in the morning, once you have dropped your child off at the waiting area (see below) you must leave the site immediately for your safety and that of others.

Social distancing measures

Here you can see a few examples of the social distancing measures in school including:

1. Spots on the play ground where the children will wait to come in at the start of the day and be collected from at the end of the day.

2. Classrooms set up with strict social distancing measures.

3. Examples of the signage in school to remind all of the measures in place.
