Times of the school day

The school gates are unlocked at 8.30am. Children who arrive unaccompanied by an adult before 8.35am will be placed in our breakfast club for which there will be a charge. Children must be supervised by their parents / carers until the whistle goes at 8.45am. Football and other games are not allowed before school because of younger children and adults’ presence on the playground at this time. Please do not bring dogs onto the playground or allow children to play on wheeled toys such as scooters, skates or skateboards. Doors to the school are unlocked at 8.45am. The school gates are locked at 9.15am and reopened at 3.10pm.

School security

The staff and governors at Wroxham are fully committed to maintaining the safety of the children and the security of the building. The school building has an alarm system and all possible measures are taken to ensure that access to the school is monitored. All visitors are requested to report to the school office and sign and visitor’s book. All exterior doors have security locks to restrict public access. The governors have responded to concerns about safety on the field by erecting notices explaining that the field is not available for public use. The gates from the field to the school playground are kept locked.

Accessibility

We are delighted that we have been able to provide a disabled toilet and shower as a result of an Adult and Community Learning grant. Disabled access is available throughout the school with the exception of the nursery steps. A designated disabled parking place has been provided in the staff car park. If you would like to join our Disability Equality Learning group of parents and governors please let Cheryl Mence, Inclusion Leader know.
