Supervision Before School
Morning Club and Supervision of Pupils on the School Site
We appreciate the difficulties faced by parents in trying to get children to school and then travelling on to work. As part of our efforts to assist parents, the school operates a Morning Club which is supervised by school staff providing a secure environment for those children who arrive early onto the school site. However, some parents are dropping children off at school from as early as 8:30am without having enrolled them in the Morning Club. For the avoidance of doubt, I wish to clarify that the school will be open to receive pupils at 8:45am. No responsibility is accepted for pupils before that time unless they are attending the Morning Club. Classes will commence each day at 9:00am and no pupils should arrive later than 8:55am. Any parents wishing to enrol their children in the Morning Club should contact Mrs Murray. Parents are also reminded that Morning Club opens at 8:00 am and you are asked to escort your children to the Morning Club entrance. No responsibility is accepted for pupils arriving on site before that time.
I would like to thank all parents for ensuring the children are wearing their full school uniform. We encourage the children to have great pride in their school and in being part of the school community. Wearing the school uniform is one of the ways in which we identify with our school and maintaining high standards throughout the year in this regard is very important. We would ask that you try to ensure that the children wear full school uniform on all days (with the only exceptions being PE days and trips). I would remind you that the school uniform includes black shoes for boys and girls
Car Parking and Vehicular Access to the School Site
I would like to remind you of the need to exercise extreme care and attention when driving into and exiting from the Parish Hall car park. Signs notifying users of a 5mph speed limit are clearly displayed. We would ask all drivers to adhere to that limit and to show courtesy and consideration to other car park users.
The Parish Hall car park and the access roads to and from it are clearly marked with double yellow lines. We would ask you not to park in these areas as this restricts access and causes congestion and delays.
We ask you to refrain from driving into the school grounds to pick up children from Nursery particularly at 2:50pm when the children in P4-P7 are being released from class. In order to ensure the safety of all children, we endeavour to keep the school grounds as a pedestrian zone. Please advise child-minders, crèches etc. of the above.
We are very fortunate to have such extensive car parking facilities so close to the school. However, it is imperative that we all adhere to the speed limits and show due care and attention to avoid accidents occurring.
