Walking Home Alone
As part of our duty of care towards our pupils, we have reviewed the procedure for allowing those children who have permission to walk home with parental supervision to leave the school premises at the end of the school day.
We have updated our approval procedure with the introduction of a form to obtain parental permission. You will need to complete and return this form to the school office.
Upon receipt of your approval form, your child will be issued with a walking home pass, which they are to keep with them so that it can be shown when leaving the school premises. Staff on the gate will ask to see this card and without it the child will not be allowed out of the school grounds.
If your child loses their walking home pass, a replacement can be arranged at a cost of 20p, with the school office.
We would also like to remind you that it is important that your child is visible when walking home on darker evenings.
