All children should arrive punctually at the beginning of each session. This prevents the possibility of activities being interrupted and ensures that no child misses out on part of an activity.

Parents/Carers are asked to collect their children promptly at the end of each session. Children will not be allowed to leave with anyone other the parent/carer unless the Supervisor or a member of Staff has been notified previously. [See note on passwords]

Children should wear comfortable and suitable clothes for Pre-School activities. No tricky buttons, belts or dungarees if possible.

Aprons are provided for activities involving paint, water and glue.

In the summer, we would ask you to provide a sun-hat (with name inside) for your child, and to apply sun-cream before your child arrives if the weather is sunny and hot.

Should you have any concerns and/or complaints, our complaints procedure can be found here.

Child Security Passwords

On joining the school each child is allocated a unique password

The child will not be released to anyone other than their parent/carer if they cannot tell us the correct password.

This is a simple security measure, please ensure friends, grandparents, etc. know the password and understands this regulation before sending them to collect a child.

Remember no child will be released without this password.
