Tredington Primary School

School Day

Morning Drop Off

The school day begins from 8:30am at Tredington.  From this time, families are welcome to drop their child off from the car park at the front gate, where they will be greeted by a member of staff.  Alternatively, parents and carers can bring their child onto the playground and drop them at the classroom door, where they will be greeted by the class teacher, should you have any messages to pass on.

Children should be accompanied by a parent or carer until they are safely in school.

On our first day of any child starting school, they can come through the main office entrance to be met by a member of the Senior Leadership Team.

The register is taken from 8:45am and all children should be in school by then.  At this time, all doors from the playground are closed and families should report to the main Reception to be signed in late. 

Afternoon Pick-Up

The gates will be opened again at around 2:55pm for children to be picked up from the playground space outside their class door at 3.00 pm.  A bell will ring to signal the end of the school day. 

The Car Park

We are very fortunate to have a large car park for parents to use.  We operate a 'one-way system' in the car park area, going in on the left and around to the right.
 
To ensure there is enough room for everyone to use the car park we ask that parents reverse park on the outer area (this is safer for the children).  There is room to park one row in the centre of the car park and one line of cars to park alongside these.  In addition single file parking along the access road is available.
 
For the safety of all users we ask that you adhere to the 5 miles an hour speed limit.
 
In the mornings only, parents are welcome to use our 'drop and go' service.  Cars can pull up near the gate entrance from the car park and allow their child to exit the car, without the need for parking.  A member of staff is on duty from 8:30am to receive these children safely.

The School Bus

Some children are entitled to travel on the school bus.  Application's to see if your child is eligible, should be made to Transport at Gloucestershire County Council.  In the first instance you may wish to contact the school office for advice about eligibility.
 
On arrival at school the bus driver will wait until a member of school staff arrives to escort the children into school.  At the end of the day a member of school staff will escort the children to the bus.  The bus driver will not depart until all children are seated and wearing their safety belt.  All children are expected to remain seated during the journey and behave appropriately.

Welcome Wednesday

Every Wednesday, parents and carers are welcome to join their child in class between 8:30am and 8:50am to find out more about what their child has been learning in school over the last week.  We see this as a really important element of our open door policy and a way for families to feel connected to their child's education.  Teachers, TAs and SLT will be present in the classroom during this time, and morning task work will be available for children whose parents are not in attendance.  We politely remind parents and carers that this is not an opportunity to discuss in-depth progress with the teacher one-to-one.
