Gate reminders

Dear Parents,


Overall, I think the dropping off and collecting routines are going quite well. We've had a few teething problems, but these are being ironed out each day so hopefully next week, we;ll have it all running perfectly.


Our barriers have now all arrived so on Monday, we should have some better queuing systems for the gates used by Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3. (Gates near Nursery and kitchen).


Timings are crucial (on our part and on yours) so please ensure you join the queue at your time slot and listen for the staff calling for the last children before they leave. We've had several children miss their gate slots this week which means they then have to wait until other groups have gone in so they are kept separate.


Staff will remain on the gate for 5 minutes only (see times below) so they can be out of the way ready for the next group as it is important that these groups don't mix. If your child misses this slot, you will need to go to the Reception gate at 8:55am or 9:05am onwards. 


See below for a reminder of the gates and the windows for you to drop off. On the first week, we made the Nursery and Reception times slightly earlier- this is working well so we are going to keep to these times.
