School Day

We start the school day with a soft start across all classes. The main gates are opened at 8:40am to allow children to come in to school from this time. All children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 must be brought to their classrooms by an adult. Children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 may be allowed to walk through the playground gate unaccompanied. Children are expected to be in school by 8:55am when the class registers will be taken. All late arriving children must be signed in to the main school office by an adult.

Drop and Go

To reduce traffic and encourage a healthy lifestyle, there is a Drop and Go scheme.  This is run by volunteers and we ask that parents support the school by helping to ensure the service continues.  The ‘Drop and Go’ is for KS2 children only. Parents can drop their children in the bus lane by the path down to the school.  They will then be supervised as they walk down to the school by volunteers along the route.  Further details may be obtained from the school office.

End of the School Day

Children are dismissed into the care of their parents by a member of staff outside their classrooms.  All parents are expected to complete a form, annually, which gives details of which adults have permission to collect their children. Children in Years 6 and 5 are allowed to walk home unaccompanied; providing the relevant forms have been completed by their parents.  If parents need to notify school of any changes to collection arrangements in an emergency, they should telephone the school office, preferably before 2:30pm.

Unauthorised cars are not allowed onto school grounds at any time.  Parents may park in the marked parking bays in neighbouring streets, free of charge, before 9:00am and after 5:00pm.  At all other times, ‘Pay & Display’ is available.  You may collect an application form for a School Parking Permit from the school office.  This Permit costs £20 per annum and will allow you to park in surrounding roads during the following times: 9 - 9:30am, 11:30am - 12pm, 12:15 - 12:45pm, 3 - 4pm.

We have been advised by the council that parking in Nursery Waye is for residents only.
