Children must be collected promptly at 3.00 p.m. (and at 11.30 am on Wednesday mornings for part time) after our story sessions. It is important that children are collected on time as they can become distressed if left. The staff also have a variety of commitments after school including staff and planning meetings.
If you arrive early please wait quietly in the reception area until the doors to the school are opened at 2.50pm to avoid the session at the end of the day being disrupted. If you need to collect your child earlier than this to get to another school please come at 2.30pm before our final session starts to cause the least disruption. Please do not use your mobile phones in school when collecting your child. They disturb the story sessions, can be intrusive and the staff may need to talk to you at the end of the school day.
Children should be collected by a parent or familiar adult. Children will not be released to anyone under the age of sixteen or to taxi companies. Please telephone if you know you are going to be late and also let the staff know if someone different is collecting your child.
Please let the staff know if there is someone who should not collect your child. Children will only be released to the adults named on the collection consent form, unless we receive a message from you.
