Pupils are dismissed from class at 3.20pm. Parents/carers are asked to wait in the following areas to pick up their child:


– Ashborne and Riber – outside classrooms

– Cromford, Tissington, Foremark and Glossop – outside Foremark and Glossop class

– Castleton, Bakewell, Dovedale and Hartington – outside classrooms

– Edale, Hope, Ticknall, Newtown


If children are not collected by the time we close the gate, they are taken to the school reception and a member of staff will telephone parents.


There is normally a School Crossing Patrol Warden available for pupils crossing Maple Drive and one for those crossing Derby Road. It is important that pupils use the crossing place and listen to the Warden’s instructions. There is also a traffic light controlled crossing point on Derby Road at the junction of Station Road.


Parents are asked to avoid bringing cars to school; it is far healthier for pupils to walk and makes arriving and leaving school far safer for them and others. Cars should never be parked on the zigzag lines or in designated bus bays; parents who do so are breaking the law and may receive a fine; police and traffic wardens regularly patrol the area.

The school car park is for staff use and delivery vehicles only.


Parents collecting children at other times of the school day are asked to do so via the front office reception area, ensuring that their child is signed out on the school’s electronic system.
