   Top five tips from parents to get  your child to school on time :

  • Remind your child of the fun things that they do in school and the happy stories that they tell you about school.
  • Ensure that your child goes to bed on time, use blackout blinds in the summer.
  • Stick to a morning routine. Give your children morning jobs (feeding the dog, taking out the lunches) to avoid distraction
  • Kids hate being rushed- give yourself and your child enough time in the morning to avoid this.
  • Walking or scootering to school means that you are not stuck in traffic. It also wakes up your child and gets them ready for their busy day.


In the mornings and at collection time, PLEASE  walk your bike/ scooter in the yard. For safety reasons, bikes should not be cycled in the yard.

Don’t forget to wear your hi-viz jacket to and from school during the autumn/ winter months!
