It has been observed that the parking of motor vehicles in the vicinity of
Weston Point Primary School , are
parked in such a manner as to cause unnecessary obstruction to other
road users and a danger to your children and their friends making their
way to and from school.
Incidents of vehicles parking:
the pavement causing an obstruction to pedestrians, which is
enforceable by way of £30 fixed penalty notice.Parking on or near to a
junction obstructing the line of sight, which is enforceable by way of
£30 fixed penalty notice.
near to the school gates on the hatch markings obstructing the line of
sight, which is enforceable by way of £30 fixed penalty notice.
are, therefore, asking for the co-operation of yourself and other users
of your vehicle in this matter, in order to help in reducing the risk
of accidents occurring at the location. Please, if you must drive your
children to or from school park well away from the school entrance and
at a location which will not cause obstruction or a danger to any other
person. As soon as your child is safely in the school or car, drive away
promptly and safely, bearing in mind those children who are arriving/
leaving on foot.
we much prefer to rely upon the willing co-operation of road users to
reduce the hazards described above. Unfortunately, if that co-operation
is not forthcoming, enforcement measures by fixed penalty or court
proceedings may be the only alternative.
The school day begins at 9:00am and finishes at 3:00 for the Infants, and 3:05 for the Juniors.
At 10:30am, all of the children in school have
a morning break time. Break time is between 10:30 and 10:45. Children
who wish to have a morning snack, are served a selection of fruit or
toast and a drink of water or milk from the hatch in the dining room.
Each snack item costs 20 pence.
Children in Key Stage 1 have their lunch at
12:00, and Key Stage 2 begin their lunch break at 12:15. Lunch times all
end at 1:00.
All children in Key Stage One have an
afternoon playtime between 2:00 and 2:15. During this playtime, the
children are provided with a small piece of fruit.
Drop-off and collection:
At the beginning and the end of the school
day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a
close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links
with all parents and carers. If normal arrangements have to be altered
(eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please
let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset. Children in Key Stage 2
can be collected by the door next to pre-school, at home time.
Getting to school:
To get to and from school, walking is
definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits; it's healthier
than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and
road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations.
Alternatively, we have bike racks. If you do need to travel by car, we
have spaces to park your vehicles, opposite the entrance to school.
is a parent's responsibility to ensure their children arrive at school
on time. Lateness can disrupt the learning of others and can result in a
pupil feeling greater stress and achieving poorer outcomes.
Every school, by law, has to register pupils
twice a day; first thing in the morning at the start of the school day,
and again in the afternoon session. If a pupil fails to attend or
arrives late they will be marked as an absence for that session.
Research shows a close link between attendance at school and a child's achievement. Being late adds up to a loss of learning.
All time out of school affects learning and
achievement for pupils. Please make sure your child arrives at school on
time.Any child who arrives after registration should go to the School
Office with parent/guardian .Parent/guardian will be asked to sign The
Late Book .This is a Health and Safety matter as we require a written record of all children in school.
