Reception Staggered Entry

Dear Parents/Carers,

As previously stated in our welcome information pack given to you on either the 5th or 6th of July, the Reception children will be having a short staggered start into school during their first few days.

The timings for this are as follows;

Wednesday 1st September – 09:00 – 11:00

Thursday 2nd September – 09:00 – 13:00 (this is including lunch)

Friday 3rd September – 08:45 – 15:00 (full time)

Arrival – ALL Reception children to enter via the Chimpanzee Gate at the Colney Road/St. Alban’s Road corner. Staff members will greet the children and help them into the building to start their day. Please drop your child at the black gate and then move on so that the pavement does not become congested.

End of the Day – ALL Reception children to exit via the Chimpanzee Gate at the Colney Road/St. Alban’s Road corner. Children will be lined up and only released when a staff member clearly sees the known adult. The classes will be released in this order: Chimpanzees, Giraffes then Tree Kangaroos. Please move on as soon as you have collected your child and allow parents and carers of the class being dismissed to move to the front of the line for collection.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming your child next week and beginning their learning journey at DPA.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards,

Mrs Humphreys

Reception Lead
