Please do not come onto the school premises before 8.30am unless you are dropping your child off at The Copse or bringing your child to a school club.

During the school day you can only access the school via the Ashridge Way entrance. 

Flexible Registration Times 

A smooth and stress-free start to the day is essential for the children’s wellbeing and development.  In order to support parents who have more than one child in school and to ease congestion outside the school, we have a flexible system in the mornings where children can enter school and be registered between 8.30 and 8.45am.

Each morning there will be a member of staff on the door to welcome your child into school and to take any messages for the class teacher or school office.  These will be passed on immediately and addressed by the relevant staff members at the earliest opportunity.

Late Arrivals

If you are late you must enter via the Ashridge gate and  report to the main school office to sign in. Your child will then be taken/sent to their class.  

Please do not send your child into school through an open door or ask staff/children to open doors for you as they may not then be properly registered. It is vital all children are registered in the case of an emergency such as a fire.   

Keeping Your Children Safe

Please make sure that your child/ren are supervised by an adult at all times in the morning and after school. If you need to drop at different ends of the school there is plenty of time within the 10-minute window to walk around the playground and deliver your child safely into school.
