If an adult comes to collect a child at any time of day they must wear this pass and show it to the security guard at the main entrance. Without a pass, the security guard will not allow you in the main perimeter entrances and will need to contact a member of staff to confirm identification. Any visitors to the school who have made a prior appointment to meet a member of staff will be issued with a visitor’s pass at the main entrance. An adult collecting a pupil will not be able to do so using a visitor’s pass.
The security pass will display the name of your children and in Early Years a picture of your child (for families with more than one child at the school, we will display the picture of the youngest child). For children in Early Years Foundation Stage, the initials EYFS will be displayed on the pass.
We will automatically provide all our families with a security pass, but would appreciate it if you could inform your child’s teacher of the adults whom you wish to give permission to collect your child/children from school. This will help us to ensure we only ever hand over your child to someone with whom you trust and have identified to us.
The main perimeter entrances of the school will remain closed until 3.20pm. At 3.20pm only adults with a security pass will be allowed through the main entrance. Adults should then wait for their children on the green part of the playground to the right of the main entrance.
At other times of the school day, parents who enter the main school building should report to the staff on duty at the main primary reception desk, stating the reason for their visit, before proceeding.
