Year 5&6 Only – Permission to walk home

Dear Parents/Carers,

In Years 5 and 6, pupils have the opportunity to walk home alone from school. We feel this plays an important role in helping them develop their independence in preparation for high school. This year, as you are aware, the home time routine will begin at 15:00 and be staggered all the way through to 15:15. If you choose to continue to collect your child, it is vital that you meet them at your designated time; however, if you give your child permission to walk home, they will be dismissed at their specific time and walk directly home.

We strongly recommend that parents do not meet their children who walk home alone from school, unless arrangements are made for them to meet away from the school gates.

If this form is not completed,  your child does not have permission to walk home alone and will have to be collected, regardless of if they have had permission from the previous year. 

Please fill out the form below as soon as possible so we have this information for the end of day procedures starting on Monday 6th September 2021.

If your child has moved classes and/or year groups, please ensure you select the relevant categories on the app so that they receive the correct correspondence from school.

Thank you,

UKS2 Team
