On Arrival and Pick up 

On entry into the grounds of Briary Primary School and Briary Preschool you will need to follow the one-way system as provided which will guide you at the front of the school gates. When dropping off your child, you will have the option of coming into preschool with your child or dropping them off outside the front and the Manager or Deputy manager will guide your child into preschool to their Key Person. 

Please try and use social distancing at all times whilst waiting outside Pre-school. (We also have a sanitizer station outside for parents)

 

On your child(rens) arrival into preschool, they will have their temperature taken and will be supervised to wash their hands. There belongings, (bag, lunch box, drink bottle) will also be wiped down with disinfectant.

On pick up, you will be asked to come inside to collect your child, and you will see your child's key person which they will feedback on your child's day and collect their belongings.
