Children will not be allowed to go home with other adults or by themselves, without prior arrangement. Please complete our electronic form and inform the office if there is a change of arrangement for collection. Classroom teachers are expected to follow the written instructions of parents, so completing our electronic collection form is very important. 

The afternoon session in Nursery finishes slightly later at 3.30pm.
