The School Day

From September 2020, the school has new drop-off and collection arrangements in place in order to adhere to the health & safety requirements put in place due to Covid-19.

The school gates open shortly before the start and end of the school day. Social distancing measures will be in place as detailed int he school's newsletters.



For reasons of health and safety, children are not allowed to play on the playground or field before or after the end of the school day. Once children have been collected, we ask that families leave the school grounds promptly. 

We ask that children do not play on the playground equipment at the beginning and end of the day whilst under parental supervision.  We are grateful to parents for the care they take in not disturbing the end of the school sessions. Dogs are not allowed on school premises.

For children travelling from Chippenham, the school bus leaves Chippenham bus stop at 8.40 am and returns after the school day, arriving at Chippenham bus stop at approximately 3.35 pm. Please speak to Jenny Drayton if you have any queries about the school bus.

At the end of the day, children should be collected promptly. Our protocol for uncollected children is in line with the Local Authority's:
