Playground expectations before 8.50am and after 3.15pm
Please help the galley Hill Community to have a positive, happy & safe experience on the Schools playgrounds. Our playgrounds are very busy with adults, children and young children. We need to ensure everyone’s safety. These expectations are to ensure no one is hit or hurt while waiting on the playground. We will be talking about these in assembly and the school council will be completing a review of the expectations.

We ask that children arrive on time. Being punctual is important for both your child and for the rest of the class. Children enter school when they hear the whistle. As they hang up their coats and sort out their bags, children settle in to a familiar routine and become ready to participate in learning. A late arrival disturbs this routine and can unsettle both your child and the class as a whole.
At the end of the school day, the children in the Foundation Area and Year 1 stay in their classrooms with their teacher until a parent or carer is seen to be waiting outside to collect them. Children in Years 2 and 3 will be dismissed from their classroom or the path outside when someone has arrived to collect them. Children in Year 4 will be dismissed from the Key Stage 2 fire doors when someone has arrived to collect them. No child from Foundation to Year 4 will be allowed to leave school until a known person is there to collect them. The school must be informed if the regular person is not collecting the child.
In Years 5 and 6, the children may meet their parent or carer on the playground or walk home independently. Please make sure your child knows who is collecting them or if they should walk home. Children are reminded to return into school if the expected person does not arrive to collect them.
