Picking children up at the end of the day
We ask that you pick your children up promptly at the end of the day so that teachers are able to continue with their marking, preparation and assessment.
If you are unable to pick your child up, please always contact the office giving us information about the person who will pick them up. Our process is as follows:
Regular Pick up
If another person is going to regularly pick up a child, the parents should notify the school office who will add this to their file and notify the class teacher. Parents can also tell their child’s class teacher who will then notify the admin staff. For example, child minders are introduced to us by children’s parents so we know that we can release to them.
If another person is going to pick up their child on a one off or infrequent occasion, we ask that the parent call the office and give us a password which they also give to the person collecting their child. We pass this to the class teacher who is then sure that she is releasing the child to the correct person. On another one-off occasion, we follow the same process with new password etc. We treat each as a separate ‘giving of permission’.
