Notes: The school accepts no responsibility for students on any school day prior to 8.30am apart from those accessing the breakfast service. Students arriving at school at abnormal hours (eg for school trips) are obviously allowed into school as appropriate.

  • No student should be inside the school’s buildings after the end of school (and certainly not after 4.00pm) unless by arrangement and directly supervised.
  • Please would parents’ park in the vacant parking spaces at school pick-up time in the afternoon, as this would be very helpful to the flow of traffic and the safety of our young people leaving the school site.
  • Also if you are visiting the school and wish to come to reception please use the internal roadway as there is parking directly outside our front entrance. Otherwise the internal roadway should only be accessed by staff, students, visitors and those delivering goods. Please note that for safeguarding reasons we would ask this roadway and pathway not to be used as a cut through between the Leisure Centre and Milldown Academy and Panda Pre-School and vice versa.
