LATE ARRIVALS TO SCHOOL AND CHILDREN LEAVING DURING THE DAY
Children who arrive late to school must report to Matron's room beside the main entrance, to sign in.
If you are taking children out during the day for an appointment, please notify the school in advance and then sign out your son/daughter in Matron's room, signing them back in on your return. This ensures we keep a fire register up to date at all times.
CAR PARKS, PICK UP AND DROP OFF
Nursery and Reception Children can be dropped off from 8.30am in their classrooms each day where staff will greet them. (Reception, from Easter Term on Fridays only, is moved forward to 8am to allow the children to attend an assembly. Registration then takes place at 8.25am) There is an Early Years car park which is used by all families, but is in close proximity to the Nursery and Reception buildings.
Year 1 & 2 Children can be brought to school from 8am everyday but parents must stay with their children until a teacher is in the classroom from 8.25am.
Middle & Upper School Children can be dropped off at 8am and staff are on duty to supervise them until registration at 8.25am.
Car parking at St Piran's is limited and leaving cars in the car park for an undue length of time can cause considerable frustration to other parents.
We operate a 'Kiss and Drop' system at the front of the school for the older ones to keep the traffic moving. The first few weeks of the new school year and Monday mornings are the most pressured times on car park space.
Please do not park cars on the yellow zig-zag lines at the front of the school or double park cars.
The staff car park at the back of the school is for staff only.
