Use of Cell Phones

Our school protocol is that if a student brings a cell phone to school, the phone is not to be used during the school day. This includes while a student is waiting for the bus and still on school property.
We are asking parents NOT to call or text their children while they are at school. If your child is unwell, we will call you from the office. If you have an urgent message for your child, we will ensure that your child receives the message. It causes confusion when a parent turns up to collect a child who has texted asking to be taken home, and neither the office nor the classroom teacher is aware.
Please help us by either keeping the cell phones at home, or helping your child to refrain from using them during the school day.

Drop off and Pick up before and after school

Parents, please note:
When dropping your children off in the mornings, or picking them up at the end of the school day, please park on the road. We have a number of buses dropping off and picking up students, and we need to ensure their safety at all times. Please do not drive along the bus lane in front of the school, as this could cause a serious accident.
We have staff out on duty who are happy to help if you are unsure of where you can go.

Thank you for helping to keep our children safe.
