I am sure you have seen that we have had a new security system installed on our front main gate and disabled-access side gate. This system will enhance security of the school site, meaning it can remain locked at all times until our staggered drop off and collection times.
Access to pre-school will be via the main front gate in future, ensuring they have a clear visual on who is coming on and off site and that the side gate (apart from whilst our one way system is in place) is for disabled access only.
The front gate is fitted with a buzzer and video system so that visitors and parents for pre-school and the out of school club can be let in and out. Parents dropping off for breakfast club should also enter the site this way as should parents who are collecting in the evening. After 5.30pm, however, there may not be a member of staff in the pre-school end of the building to buzz you through, so parents collecting after this time will need to come into the main school entrance by eth office and ring for attention.
The disabled gate is accessed with a fob system. Families who access the school this way will be issued with their own fob that can be used between allotted drop off and collection times.
