Arrival And Collections Policy Nursery

Our School will give a warm and friendly welcome to each child on arrival and ensure that they depart safely at the end of each session.  It is the responsibility of staff to ensure that an accurate record is kept of all children in school, and that any arrival or departure to and from the premises is recorded in a separate register held in the room, which all parents must sign when children are taken from the premises earlier than the usual sessions. Similarly, when a child arrives late, parents must sign the record held in the Office.  The register will be kept in an accessible location at all times. This process will be supplemented by regular head counts during each session.  Records of daily registers should be kept by the school for recommended years by Local Authority.
Both main gates [front and back] will be unlocked at 8.30am and locked at The pedestrian motorised gate will be used during the day to restrict access and protect the staff and children.  At 11.30 the Wenlock Road gate will be unlocked to allow access to the nursery, internal gates remain locked to ensure the safety of all pupils. They will be locked again at 12.45pm. At 3pm the gates will be unlocked, re locked at 4pm when the majority of the children have left the premises. After this time, access to and from the premises will be via the motorised gate at the front of the school. 
The motorised pedestrian gate will be used before 8.30am, after 9a.m, and after 4pm
A member of staff will be on duty on the external doors during the opening times for the school.  These doors will be open from 8.45 – 8.50 am each day and 12.30-12.35 for nursery children  In this way information can be shared between home and school at the beginning of each day to ensure children’s welfare is given high priority. 
If the child is to be collected during the day by someone other than the parent/carer, this must be indicated to a member of staff before collection.  The adult nominated to collect a child must be one of those named by the parent. Only adults – aged 16 years and over – and with suitable identification, will be authorised to collect children. The adult will sign to acknowledge that a child has been collected. This will only ever be through the main entrance. 
At the end of each nursery session the children will be kept in their playrooms until a member of staff opens the external doors and the children will then be handed over to the parent/carer by the nursery staff. A password system operates if an adult other than the regular parent/carer is picking up a child.  No adult other than those named will be allowed to leave the school with a child. In the event that someone else should arrive without prior knowledge, the school will telephone the parent/carer immediately and await their advice. 
If the parent/carer or alternative nominated adult is going to be late to collect 
their child, staff must be informed of this on arrival. If the designated adult is 
late in picking up their child without prior warning, the provisions of the 
Uncollected Children policy will be activated. 
In nursery parents are asked to make a queue so that the children can be handed 
over to the parent/carers safely. Older sibblings are not to enter the nursery 
teaching spaces.
