Start/End of Day

At the start of the school day:

At Longfield we operate a "Soft Start" approach.  From 8:30 onwards staff will be in the playground and children may come on to the school site.  Upper school pupils will be asked to wait on the basketball playground, whilst the lower school children will line up against the white fence, next to their class picture.  At 8:40, children can enter the school and go straight to class where they will be greeted by their class teacher.  At this point, all parents will be asked to leave the school premises and be stopped from entering the school at the gates however reception parents will be allowed to walk their children to the playground. The register will be taken at 8:50.  After this time children will be marked as late.

Please be prompt collecting your child at the end of the day. Children get very anxious if you are late. If another adult is to collect your child either temporarily or permanently, please send a note to the teacher. If for any reason you are unavoidably delayed please contact the school and arrange for someone else to collect the child. We cannot guarantee that staff will be able to supervise children after 3:30 pm. Please ensure that emergency telephone numbers and contact names for your child are up to date at all times.

If you need to collect your child from school during the day for an appointment please come to the main office and ask the office staff. A member of staff will collect your child from their class.
