Late Collection Policy

Policy Aim

To enable staff to carry out essential work after school by ensuring timely collection of children.  This work includes marking, lesson preparation, meetings and training.

There is a late collection charge for children who are not collected from school on time.  Parents who wish to use the After School club because of work commitments need to contact Caroline Gartan, Clubs Manager on 07464 490170 or by email at caroline.gartan@newingtongreen.islington.sch.uk

Please note that if you are late collecting your child on 3 occasions within the same half term, you will be contacted by the School’s Home School Worker and may be required to attend a meeting in school.

Exceptional Circumstances

Please note that at the headteacher’s discretion, this policy may be waived for exceptional circumstances.

How the policy is applied

Part time nursery children (mornings only)

3 year old (3YO) children with a part-time, morning only place in the nursery will finish at 12:00pm, 2 year old  (2YO) children finish at 11:45pm.  Children who have not been collected by 12:10 (or 11:55 for 2YO) will be taken to the school reception where the receptionist will register them.  A late fee of £3 will be charged to parents, for children who are still in school between 12:15pm – 12:30pm (12:00-12:15 for 2YO).

Please note the Safeguarding Officer is notified of all repeated occurrences of late collection regardless of whether it takes place at school, an enrichment club or the after school club.

School Day finishes at 3.30pm.

Teachers will remain in the playground until 3.40pm.  Children who are not collected by 3.40pm will be taken to Beech classroom where a member of the office team will register them.  Parents will then be called to advise them that their child must be collected and they may be charged a late collection fee.  A late fee of £3 will be charged to parents for children who are still in school between 3.45pm – 4.00pm.
