Temporary  / Emergency Access Arrangements

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL ACCESS – from Wednesday 4th September 2019 onwards:


Following the emergency access route arrangements that were put in place during February 2019 after our flood from the broken/blocked culvert, we can confirm that substantial repair works have now been done, and the majority of access issues have been resolved.  Approximately 30 metres of reinforced underground pipe have been installed following the route of the original collapsed pottery pipework, and culvert is now running freely without impacting on the school grounds.


From Wednesday 4th September, the only areas that will remain restricted are the Greenhouse & Growing Area, and the Key Stage 1 wooden climbing structure within the Key Stage 1 playground.  This means that full access will once again be opened around the Foundation Stage outdoor classroom area, connecting between the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 playgrounds.

Accordingly, school will revert to three main entrances for children to arrive at and leave from school; and any special arrangements for Year 1 pick-up via the car park entrance gates will now cease, and they will revert to using the playground entrance/exit door in the Year 1 cloakroom.


Thankyou for your cooperation during a difficult six months, and hopefully all areas will be back and in full use by October half term.
