In order to strengthen security and to clarify our procedures, please observe the following arrangements:
Mornings / Drop Off
The car park is locked between 8.30 am - 9.15 am and 3.10 pm - 3.35 pm each day to ensure the safety of the children. Please adhere to the parking regulations outside school as advised by Solihull MBC. Do not risk getting a penalty notice from the parking wardens and please park considerately and safely for the benefit of yourself, your children and our neighbours.
Nursery children should be accompanied to school, walk in through the Lower School pedestrian gates and into the Early Years entrance by 8.30 am. As the door will be manned, pupils will not be able to go back out of the school grounds.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children should walk in through the Lower School pedestrian gates and through the blue gates at the far right of school which will be unlocked for 8:40 am. Parents are asked to not crowd by the gates.
Years 3 to 6 children should walk in through the KS2 pedestrian gate and directly across the car park and through the KS2 gate at the far left of school. This gate will be open between 8:30 am and 8:40 am.
In the morning, any late children must go to the school office to be signed in the ‘late log’. This is found by the school office in the main Upper School entrance area and is used to cross-reference with the attendance register.
