Drop off and collection
From 8.30am, at the beginning of the school day, parents and carers will see members of staff on the main gate and around the playground. This is to help build a close relationship between home and school and develop links. This is a really good time to come and talk to staff, and if necessary, make an appointment for a longer discussion.
The end of the school day is staggered to make it easier for adults to pick up the children from the playground.
Reception parents wait in the playground, outside the cloakroom doors until the children are sent out individually by the staff.
Year 1 parents wait at the fence to the Y1 outdoor area so they can be seen and the children sent out individually.
From Year 2 upwards, children are brought into the playground by the class teachers and parents are asked to wait in their designated areas (see the playground signs) to collect them.
If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.
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 which are lockable and encourage children to come by bike or scooter.
If you do need to travel by car, please park in the Park and Ride next to Allerton High School. Alternatively, in the car park at the Lingfield Centre, when it is available.
