Access Arrangements from the beginning of the Autumn Term

Following meetings with the Education Funding Agency, Galliford Try and Councillors, it has been agreed to increase the number of pupil entrances to the new school from one to three.

All Nursery and Reception pupils are asked to enter via the Goodwood Avenue gates only. If children have siblings in KS1 or KS2 parents can take the elder siblings through the walkway to the KS1 playground / KS2 entrances. Pupils attending Abacus Breakfast and After School Club should also enter and leave via Goodwood Avenue gates.

All other pupils in KS1 and KS2 are asked to enter and leave via either the main Chepstow Avenue or Plumpton Avenue gates.

These 3 pedestrian entrances will allow a much safer and less congested entrance and exit from our school.

On 9th and 10th September a fence will be installed from the Nursery across the new Junior playground to make this area safe and secure for pupils and to ensure no KS1 or KS2 pupils or parents can enter or leave via this entrance.

Contractors have been working incredibly hard over the summer holiday and I am very pleased to say that our new school and grounds are now complete and look absolutely stunning.

My staff and I look forward to seeing you next Tuesday, 5th September for the start of the new school year.
