The school is changing the way parents and members of the public access the school during school hours in order to create a safer environment.
We are now closing all the gate on Balfour Street at 9.15 every morning; from then, until 3.00pm all visitors need to use the pedestrian gate by the car park as the only access point. This has a secure entry system and closed circuit tv.
Please also note that from September 2015 there is now no access to the main playground through the Foundation Stage area. While we understand that this is a longer walk for some families, this is to ensure that we provide a safer environment for pupils in the Foundation Stage. We are now opening the main playground gate before and after school in order to reduce the number of families having to walk past the Year 3/4 classes which can become highly congested.
