End of Day Collection Arrangements

Dear Parents and Carers


Thank you for everyone’s support this week as we have returned to school and trialled alternative arrangements for picking up.  We recognise that the end of the day is going to be busy but felt that we needed to change from a staggered end as we were losing a large amount of learning time at the end of the day.  We also felt that this enables staff and parents to get to know each other.


In response to feedback, we are going to trial having an in and an out gate on English Road.  The vehicular gate in the corner of English Road will be open from Wednesday morning for OUTGOING pedestrians only, the EXIT gate will now become the ENTRANCE gate.  Please note that you will only be able to use the English Road IN gate if you only have children to collect on English Road, there won’t be any access to other parts of the school grounds from the English Road playground.


Collection at the end of the day will also be an open window between 3.10pm – 3.20pm.  The Imperial Avenue entrance is generally quieter than the Foundry Lane gate with less queues.


We are aware that the scaffolding is also presenting an additional challenge but we are hopeful that this will be removed by the end of this week.


These changes will take place from Wednesday 8th September.


With kind regards

Foundry Lane Primary School
