At the beginning and end of the school day, we ask that parents come into the playground to drop off and collect their child. We pride ourselves on being an open and friendly school but in order to ensure the children's safety we ask that you say goodbye to your child outside the classroom door and allow them to come into the classrooms by themselves. If you have any concerns you are welcome to call at the school office to let us know. The teacher can always ring you later or arrange to meet you at a mutually convenient time.

If normal collection arrangements have to be altered please let us know as this will avoid any confusion or upset.


To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! Not only is it healthier than travelling by car but it also inproves that safety of pedestrians and stops Pine Grove becoming conjested. To enter the school grounds please use the gates from the public footpath. We do have bike racks in the Junior Playground which you can use. Please do not walk up the school drive.

If you do need to travel by car, please be considerate to our neighbours when parking. Please do not drive up the school drive as the car park is for staff only.
