Collection of children at the end of the school day

Children should be collected promptly at the end of the school day.

For reasons of safety, staff will only hand your child over children to parents/carers or another authorised person. Parents should complete and return the Persons Authorised to Collect Children From School form, detailing all those persons who have permission to collect the child on a regular basis.

A copy of this form will be held in each class to ensure that only authorised persons take the child home.  Any other ad hoc changes to this will need to be communicated either via the child’s class teacher or by a telephone call to the school office before 2.30pm (11am or 2.50pm if the child is in Nursery). If the school hasn’t received any notification and an unauthorised person arrives to pick up the child, we will not release them until the school has spoken directly to the parents/carer.

Procedure in the event of a school closure

Information regarding closure of Oakgrove and the subsequent re-opening of the school will be placed on the school and the local authority websites, on social media and on the school app. These sites are regularly monitored by the media, and any closures are then broadcast on local radio stations.

Please do NOT telephone the school to ask if it is open, but instead check the website and local media.
