School drop off and pick up

Entrance: Pyle Hill gate

The Pyle Hill gate will open at 8.30 for parents to access the school site.

Parents are asked to wait in the area outside the side door to the new build that faces the Pyle Hill Gate – see map

Staff will not open the side doors to receive children until 8.35 when Y3 children will be greeted and let in by Y3 teachers and staff

At the end of the day, the Pyle Hill gate will be opened at 3.05pm. Y3 parents are asked to wait outside the allocated classroom doors on the map for staff to open the doors and let the children out at 3.10pm to a named adult

What do I do if I have another child in another year group?

If you have younger children, then we recommend you drop them off first before your Y3/4 child.

Drop your Y3/4 child off at this gate and then your elder child/ren can walk to their classrooms from the Y3/4 drop off point independently. Alternatively, if your other children are able to walk to their classrooms independently they can all be dropped off at the Nightingales gate.
