Arriving at School:

  • The school doors open at 8.45am for the children to have a slow start to their school day. The register is taken at 8:55am.
  • Parents MUST NOT send their children before this time as supervision cannot be assured.
  • Children arriving after 9.00am are marked late.
  • Children arriving after 9.10am are marked as an unauthorised late.

Drop-off & Collection Procedure:

  • Parents are to take their children to their class line on the playground for 8.50am and stand clear to allow the teachers to collect their classes in the morning.
  • Parents are still responsible for their children until collected by the teacher.
  • At 3.30pm, parents should collect their children from the correct areas:
    • Nursery and Reception – The EYFS Building
    • Key Stage 1 – The Key Stage 1 Doors
    • Key Stage 2 – The Key Stage 2 and Hall Doors
  • Parents must stand clear of the doors to allow the teachers to identify parents/carers before releasing the children.
  • Staff are not permitted to open any external doors after 8.55am, if you arrive after this time please enter the school via the office.
  • We respectfully ask that you do not disturb classes by knocking on the windows.
  • If you would like to speak to your child’s teacher they are available on the playground or you can request an appointment at the office.

Thank you for helping the school keep the children’s safety a priority.

Polite Parking Request:

We acknowledge that our school has been built in an awkward location for vehicle access.  Consequently, we have arranged permission from Bolton Road Methodist Church for access to their car park for our parents at the beginning and end of the school day.  We urge parents to use this facility rather than parking on the Back Bolton Road, Colville Drive and Kenmoor Avenue as doing so causes problems for residents.  

We expect parents to respect the reputation of our school by agreeing to:

• Drive safely, within the school area, adhering to the speed limits and driving in accordance with the Highway Code;
• Not stop or park on the yellow “School - Keep – Clear” and “zig-zag” markings during the times indicated on the yellow “No Stopping” signs outside the school (Usually Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm);
• Not to park on any double yellow lines;
Avoid parking in a way that would block or cause an obstruction to the school entrance/exit, residents’ driveways and/or junctions;
• Not mount the pavement when stopping or parking, allowing pedestrians to be able to walk on pavements and space for prams to pass;
Not to use the staff car park as a pick up or drop off point for your children;
• Park so that your child is able to leave the vehicle on the pavement side away from any conflict with traffic;
• Pay particular attention for other children at the side and rear of the vehicle when parking, dropping off or setting off;
Avoid double parking, so as not to adversely affect the flow of traffic or access for emergency vehicles;
• Not park in any bus stops or any designated disabled/private parking bays;
• Respect local residents and businesses by not parking in a way that blocks access or egress to their homes or premises;
• To forward any concerns regarding dangerous parking and road safety in the school environment to the Headteacher or a Governor, who can then take appropriate action.

School Meals

Mrs N Murray is our school cook. She prepares and serves over 100 school meals everyday.

We also have a salad bar, available to all children having school dinners.

See below for more information about Bury's School Meal Service

On offer each day there is:

  • A minimum of two choices of main course with vegetables or salad, plus potatoes or an alternative carbohydrate such as pasta. In many schools there is also a third choice option of jacket potato with a variety of fillings;
  • Two choices of dessert or fresh fruit;
  • Extra bread;
  • A non-meat choice;
  • A drink which could be fruit juice, milk or water.

The school menus run on a three week cycle which is changed twice a year to avoid repetition and introduce new dishes.
