Drop off and collection from school and nursery

Please make sure that you use the lines marked on the ground in the morning and at the end of the day.  This is to keep everyone safe.  Adults from diffferent families must socially distance, 2m apart.  If you see the area is busy please wait until there is a space.

Children who are being collected will not be allowed to leave until the adult is there for them. If you have a child in P6 or P7 please arrange a point away from the gates where you can meet them to minimise the numbers of adults in this area.   They should not be walking to meet you at the front of the school or nursery waiting zones.  We are lucky to have lots of grassy areas to the front and side of the school and be so close to the Levern Walkway.  If your child has to walk to meet you please make sure they know exactly where you will be.
