drop offs and pick ups

parental information

At the end of the day parents will pick their children up from the nominated exit; we ask you to be patient, stand behind the painted line and think of others. If you need to speak to a teacher then the teacher will be happy to talk with you but you must be prepared to wait until the children have been safely handed over to parents/ nominated responsible adult.

External after school provision

Some parents choose to use local child care providers e.g.  Carisbrook, to provide after school care. Parents must call the school office if, for any reason circumstances change e.g. you have cancelled the provision for that day or your child is attending an additional session that week. Carisbrook will collect the children from the school hall and sign a register to acknowledge that your child is now in the care of the external provider.

failure to collect a child

MCPA will always endeavour to support parents and ensure that children are kept safe. It is important that children are collected promptly as staff have their own work/family commitments and it can be very distressing for children when parents are late.

If, due to unforeseen circumstances, you are going to be delayed please contact the school immediately.

Procedure if a parent fails to collect a child or contact the school

In the event of a child not being collected at the end of the school day or session, the person in charge will:

  • Phone contact numbers given by the child’s parents or carers

  • If no contact has been made after half an hour, or sooner we will contact our designated safeguarding officer to advise on further action.
