Enabling works for Greswold’s expansion will begin on Monday 20/6/16. The enabling works will involve establishing a site compound, removing trees, relocating of infant trim trail and gazebo, creating of additional fire doors and car parking works.
We have put in place arrangements to accommodate the enabling work and would appreciate your co-operation at this time. From next week the Infant pedestrian access will be closed off by the contractors. All children will need to enter the school site through the Junior pedestrian access. As you can imagine there will be a lot of congestion around the Junior gate in the mornings and we ask for your patience and understanding whilst these changes are taking place. Mrs Scott and Mr Hornsey will be present around the car park and Junior gate each morning to help alleviate congestion and during this time the vehicular access to the staff car park will be closed to ensure the safety of the children.
Reception and Nursery parents will need to walk across the car park to enter the school building through the Nursery/Greyhounds entrance from 08:40. Staff will welcome the Reception children at the door and direct them along the corridor and onto the playground as usual.
Morning Nursery children can be collected from their normal place as usual but parents will need to walk through the car park to exit through the vehicular access or Junior gate.
Afternoon Nursery children will also need to walk through the vehicular or junior entrance at drop off time. The vehicular exit will not be closed during the day so can we ask that you are extra vigilant when walking across the car park.
Both Afternoon Nursery and Reception parents will need to walk onto the Junior playground and all the way around the back of school to collect their children from the back door of each classroom. The Junior gate will be opened from 15: 15, please then exit the school the same way as you have entered.
Year 1 and Year 2 children will proceed through the Junior gate in the morning and onto the junior playground. Parents should not accompany their children through the Junior gate. Members of the Year 1 and Year 2 team will be on the playground to greet the children each day. At collection times parents will need to enter school via the junior gate which will be opened from 15:15. Parents will need to wait on the junior playground and the teachers will then bring the children out to waiting parents.
Years 3 to 6 parents please walk onto the Key Stage 2 playground to collect your children at the end of the school day. Morning drop off will be the same arrangements as usual however as you can imagine there will be a lot more congestion around the Junior gate.
During playtimes and lunchtimes all children from Years 1 to 6 will be using the Key Stage 2 playground and fields. We would like to reassure you that there will be adequate lunchtime supervisors with the children at all times.
Due to a shortage of spaces on the school site, the car park is not to be used by any parent. This includes any parents that are volunteers for the school and anyone collecting children from Greyhounds and after school clubs.
Any further changes will be communicated as soon as we can. We would like thank you in advance for your support and understanding.
