For the children living in Margrove Park and Charltons there is a walking bus service at the beginning and end of the school day. The morning bus collects children at Charltons at 8.15 a.m. and arrives at school at 8.35 a.m. The afternoon bus collects the children at approximately 3.00 p.m. and arrives at Charltons at around 3.20 p.m.

We feel that it is important to keep our school as safe and secure as possible for our children. Therefore, we ask that children enter the building by the side or rear doors. The doors are unlocked at 8.40 a.m. and locked at 8.55 a.m. Children arriving after this time must go to the main front door where Mrs Falconbridge will let them in.

The school gates will be closed at 8.35 a.m., lunchtime and at 2.45 p.m.

Can I stress for the safety of the children that cars must not be brought down the school drive or parked near the entrance.
