Staff will only let children go to an adult they recognise and may ask you who you are if they are unfamiliar with you. Please do not be offended we need to make sure that children are being collected and taken home by the right people.

Gate closes at 3:25pm at which point children who are not collected will be taken to the office and parents called to ascertain why they have not been picked up. In emergencies children will be looked after in After School Club until they are collected if parents have not booked children into the club.
