Currently, each Year group has a designated gate for drop off and pick up and parents are not allowed on the school grounds. We ask that parents ensure their children attend school punctually and ready for their day.

Parents are notified in advance of days where their child may require specific items. At the moment, we are asking children to come in to school in their PE kit on PE days.

It is important that we know who is collecting your child, therefore we ask that you always let us know if it is someone different as we cannot let children go with people who are strangers to us unless we have your permission.

We offer 'Wake Me Up' Breakfast Club and 'Stars' After School Club, which needs to be booked and paid for in advance using the Arbor Parent Portal or app.

We aim to offer a variety of after-school activities each term. Parents/carers will need to provide written consent for each activity in advance. Please see our extra-curricular page for a sampe of the range of activities on offer. Please note, we are not currently offering any clubs.
