School Timetables

Drop off and Collection

Children can arrive at school from 8.45am and are welcomed straight inside the building so they can hang up their belongings and settle into class ready for registration at 8.55am. We encourage parents onto the playground to build close relationships between school and home, parents are able to talk to their child’s class teacher before or after school. Please notify staff if someone different than usual is picking up your child.

Getting to School​

We encourage children to walk to school. There is a school crossing patrol at the junction of Harpers Lane and Erskine Road. Access via Cedar Road is used by pedestrians only. For health and safety reasons, parking is not available in the school grounds but there is safe parking available on the Church car park. We operate a one way system at all times on the Church car park, entrance via Harper's Lane and exit behind Parish Centre, where you will also find an overflow of parking spaces.
