owlicon_dd5533

All children in Year 1 to Year 6 return to school on Thursday 3rd September.

In order to ensure safe access to the school site, we have installed new gates so that each year group enters by a separate entry point.

• Gates 1 and 2 are the two existing gates at the main entrance on Havelock Road. (YEAR 2 / YEAR 4)

• Gate 3  NEW  is on Havelock Road, giving access directly into the Foundation Stage playground. (YEAR R)

• Gate 4 is the existing gate on High Town Road next to the High Town Road (KS1) Playground. (YEAR 1)

• Gate 5 is in Cobden Street next to the delivery entrance.  (YEAR 3)

• Gate 6 is at the bottom of Cobden Street, giving access to the North Street (KS2) Playground.  (YEAR 6)

• Gate 7  NEW  is on North Street, giving access to the North Street (KS2) Playground.  (YEAR 5)

The map below shows the access points for each year group to use.

Pupils should wait in the QUEUEING AREAS next to their entry gates. Class teachers and teaching assistants will come to the gates to collect the class at the specified time. Please arrive at the right time to avoid congestion between classes.
