Children not collected at the end of the school day will be supervised in the First Aid room by a Welfare Assistant until 3.45pm. Parents may gain access via the main school office, which is in Waremead Road.
You must inform the school before 3:15pm if you know you will be late collecting your child so that we can let the child know what is happening. It can be very distressing for a child that is late being picked up and this way we can keep them informed.
The school will make every effort to get in touch with parents/carers or emergency contacts for children left in school after school hours. However, if the school has been unable to do this and has not been contacted by anyone 30 minutes after school hours, we will then alert the local police via 101 of an uncollected child. By 4.30pm the police will contact the school to see if the uncollected child has been collected. If not, the school will organise transport for the child to be taken to the nearest police station. The Head Teacher will deliver a letter to the child’s home address outlining the action taken and then take the child to the police station. The school will discuss the situation with the parents/carers the following day, and report an abandoned child situation to Social Services.
