Older Siblings Collecting Pupils - Changes to Guidance

Good morning all,

The local authority have given all schools guidance regarding who collects children from school and asked us to tighten up on these procedures.

It won't apply to most of you, as I know nearly all our children are collected by adults.

However, going forward primary school children will not be able to be collected by a sibling under the age of 16 unless the school has written permission from the parent/carer.

We are happy to help with this, so if there are any of you who regularly get a sibling to collect the children and this sibling is under 16 please can you put this in writing to the school making it clear you give permission for this to happen.

If you have any questions or need any help please ring the office and we will be only too happy to help.

Many thanks,

Mrs Robbins
