The gate on Stafford Road to enter the main building will not be opened to any parent/ carer unless their child is late or a Nursery am parent needs to speak to a member of the office staff. The school has gone to a lot of measures to ensure that the gates are secure, therefore could we ask parents to not keep the gate open for other parents, they will need to buzz the main office for assistance.

Main Reception

Parents should not be exiting school through the main reception unless you need to go to the office for a specific reason. Each class has a secure box for any letters, forms monies etc, which should eradicate most reasons to go to the main reception.
