Drop off and Collection

At the beginning and end of the day parents are welcome into the school playground. Reception and Year 1 are dropped off and collected from the small playground and all other classes from the main playground.
If there are any changes to your child's normal arrangements please let us know. The best way to do this is by using your child's communication book (which is checked every morning by a member of staff). However, if this is not possible please contact the school office.

Getting to School

Please use the village car park and walk your child the short distance to school to avoid congestion around the school itself where there is no parking. Some children may be eligible to access the school bus service (please contact the Chehsire East Council Transport Helpline: 0300 123 5012 for more information).
