We would be grateful if you do not bring any children with you, and no hot drinks are allowed for safety reasons. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Prospective parents - nursery

We have a wonderful nursery, where children thrive and develop in all areas of the curriculum. We have a dedicated nursery teaching team, a lovely large classroom and a nursery outside area. We would like to provide parents with an opportunity to visit our nursery and ask any questions that you may have regarding the curriculum, attendance and funding. This is for parents of children that are eligible to attend nursery who will be 3 years old before 31st August 2024. The meeting/tour will be held on Wednesday 27th March at 3.45pm.

Visitor access

The school benefits from a wide range of parental and community involvement.

We look forward to welcoming parents, carers and friends back into the school again, to support with special events, projects, trips and visits.

As you will appreciate, it is not possible for teachers to discuss issues with parents/carers at the beginning and end of the day when they are supervising their class in the playground. If you want to talk to your child’s teacher about any concerns, please initially email the school at Alternatively, you can speak with a member of the office team over the telephone on 0207-254-4014 and the relevant member of staff will contact you as soon as possible. The Senior Management team are also in the playground at the beginning and end of the school day.


While staff and governors wish to facilitate access to the school for parents and carers, they also have a responsibility for the safety and security of children. All visitors during school hours are therefore asked to:

  • Use the entry phone at the Church Street entrance, to speak with the staff on reception in the first instance.
  • Sign in at the office if entering the school and wear a visitor’s badge during their stay. This is not intended to act as a discouragement to visit, but is necessary as a security measure.

The back gate on Dynevor Road and side gate on Lancell Street are opened by a member of the senior management team at the beginning and end of the school day:

  • from 8.53am – 9.05am, and
  • from 3.25pm to 3.40pm

Otherwise, entry is via the main gate on Church Street.

In addition to the entry phone on Church Street, closed-circuit television (CCTV) system is also in operation during the school day and until our after school provision (Junior Adventures Group) closes at 6pm.
