- Younger children have an afternoon playtime.
Drop-off and collection
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset. For those parents who wish the children at KS2 to walk home by themselves, a written permission is required. At this current time, a staggered drop off and collection is in place alongside one way systems at both entrances to the school.
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 causing as little disturbance as possible to Winthorpe Road and Penshurst Avenue residents.
