Children in the KS1 and KS2 Resource Base will exit at 2.50pm from the ASC playground as usual.
Please collect younger siblings first and older children will wait with the class teacher until parents arrive. With parents/ carers permission children in years 5 and 6 can make their way to meet parents on the main playground if this is more appropriate.
Can I please take this opportunity to remind all parents/ carers, that we do not allow dogs or smoking (including e-cigarettes) on the school premises so please can I ask you to refrain from bringing dogs or smoking, this includes the plaza at the front of the school.
Please support these timings by discussing with children where you will stand on the playground at the end of the day as children feel most confident when they know where to find their parent/carer. Having a regular place to stand away from the door will support smaller children who are currently having difficulty finding parents. Please stand away from the doors to avoid crowding, staff will ensure that children see who is picking them up before dismissing them.
