Consultation on doors response:

13th October 2017

Dear parents / carers,

 

Thank you so much for those of you who completed our parent consultation about the entry and exit doors for school. We have carefully looked at the overall results, as well as your comments.

The response was that three-quarters of parents were happy with our suggestions. However, around three-quarters again, raised issues with another door in school.  This is the Year 2 door.

 

We are very grateful for all feedback and are always willing to look at every suggestion. Whilst we know that we will never manage to please everyone, we hope you see that we have listened and acted in this instance.

 

The new doors from Monday 30th October (after half-term) are as follows:

 

Reception No change. Still from the classroom doors.
Year 1 No change. Still from the classroom doors.
Year 2 Following your feedback Year 2 will now enter and exit from the back of the school, onto the KS1 playground. Some of you will remember this door was used previously. Please understand that children will be released by staff. If your child is at the back of the queue, please wait until the teacher dismisses them rather than reaching for them. We know this can be difficult and we will be as quick as we can but we need to know where all children are until they are released to you.
Year 3 Year 3 will now enter and exit from the double doors in the hall. Birch will always leave from the left door (as you face school) and Hazel always from the right (as you face school).
Year 4 Year 4 will now enter and exit from the door at the back of the office which leads onto the Key Stage 1 playground.
Year 5 No change. Still from the top of school onto the Key Stage 2 playground.
Year 6 No change. Still from the top of school onto the Key Stage 2 playground.

 

Some families commented that it is difficult to get around school. All doors will be open from 8:45 until the bell rings at 8:55. This will give ten minutes to get around school. However, we appreciate that some people – particularly child minders – have multiple drops to make. If this is the case and is difficult for you, please call in at the office and we will do what we can to help.

 

Once again, thank you so much for your feedback. I hope that you can see we really have listened to your views and acted on them.

 

Yours sincerely
