Years 3 – 6 – 1:30pm
Anyone coming to watch and cheer the children on should enter the school field through the double gates at the bottom of the main drive. A member of staff will be supervising this gate and everyone should leave this way too after the morning event.
At the end of the afternoon event, the children will return into school to return their chairs and collect their belongings. They will then be dismissed through the normal doors, providing there is an adult waiting to collect them. If you then walk round to the infant yard, younger siblings will be handed out to you from there. Where there is no adult to collect a child early, we will obviously keep them in school until the bell goes.
Please remember that any photos taken are for your own personal use and MUST NOT be uploaded onto any social media sites. This is for the safety of some of our children. We very much appreciate your support on this matter.
We look forward to seeing you there and fingers (and everything else) crossed for the weather!
Please remember to check the school website – ashleyprimary.co.uk regularly for updates and news. Newsletters are uploaded every Friday and have important dates etc on the first page.
