Morning Gate Opening - changes to timings.

Dear Parents / Carers


All gates to the school will now be closed at 8.50 each morning. Any child arriving later than this time will need to enter the school via the office. 
This decision has been made because the number of children arriving after 8.50 is minimal and will not affect the measures we have in place to avoid congestion / crowding. 
The risk assessment has been changed as follows. 

Stagger arrival times and break times (including lunch), so that all children are not moving around the school at the same time

At DMPA: The window for dropping children off at school in the morning has been extended from 8.30 to 8.50. With multiple entrances to the school this will reduce congestion with everyone arriving at the same time.
