Dear Parents and Carers,
The Morning Sports Club need to work in a safe environment within a closed playground and there have been recent incidents where a member of the public has tried to gain access to the premises.
As from Wednesday 14th September 2016, the gates on Clitheroe Road and Slade Grove will be opened at 8.45am to allow access to the playground for lining up or to the main hall for lining up if it is wet.
Please do not send children unaccompanied to school before this time (unless they are attending Morning Sports Club). Also, please do not arrive with your children before 8.45am as there is no suitably sized area to accommodate everyone.
Unsupervised gatherings present safeguarding issues and staff are available to supervise from 8.45am, including attending the gates and assisting with enquiries.
Most people arrive between 8.45 and 8.55am and pupils enjoy lining up ready for their teachers when the whistle blows. I hope you will all understand that the need to keep your children safe is of utmost concern to us and I anticipate your co-operation in this matter.
Ms L Rose
