From 8.40am, Mrs Knight or Miss Choma will usually be available on the KS1 Playground to meet and greet children and families. 

We are unable to accept responsibility for the safety and well-being of children who are in the playground before the doors open at 8.40am and who are unsupervised.  The same applies for children who are not collected promptly at the end of the school day (3.15pm) – please contact the school office if you are running late.  We will of course do our best to help in an emergency.
