Arrangements for arriving at and leaving school


There are three ways into the school; Bridlington Road (Main Entrance, Wansford Road and Manorfield Avenue.  As a general rule, children may enter school by the most convenient route. All pedestrian entrances to the school will be opened at 8.50 am when a member of staff is on duty at each gate.  Children are able to arrive at school from 8:50 and go straight into their classroom, where their teachers will be waiting for them.  Please do not send your child to school earlier than this unless they are attending our breakfast club.


We ask for your co-operation in not parking near any school gates and being considerate of our neighbours as you drop off or collect your child from school.


Access Arrangements During Extreme Weather


During extreme weather, when the site may be covered with snow or ice, we will only open the main gate on Bridlington Road 


Should the occasion arise when we do not have enough staff on site to safely open we will make use of our app, text messaging service, website, Radio Humberside and Viking FM to make announcements.
