Home Time

Children will be collected from the playground near the front gate on Oswald Road.

Coats

Coats and PE kit should be put in the cupboards provided in the classroom.
Please name your child’s coat.

Phones & Personal Belongings

Toys and other personal belongings should not be brought to school. If a child needs to bring in a mobile phone for when they walk home, it must be handed into the office at the start of the school day, and collected at the end of the school day.

Hometime

If your child is ready to walk home by themselves, we will need a permission letter from parents to ensure that all children are accounted for at the end of the day, for safeguarding purposes.

For drop off and pick ups, the following system will be in place following October Half Term. Year 6 parents/carers will enter school through the Oswald Road gate and follow the blue running track past the Willow Garden, past the black pitch and near side car park. Teachers will bring the children to their space between the metal frame and car park and line them up. At 3.15pm children will be sent home in order of their line. Children who walk home alone will be in the front of the line and exit first via the pedestrian gate near the car park. All other children to follow with parents/carers. 

Contacting a Teacher

Please make an appointment via the school office by emailing admin@oswaldroad.manchester.sch.uk, to arrange a mutually convenient time. If your child is going to be absent from school please ring the office on 881 4266 and leave a message on the answer phone before 9.30 am. If you are collecting children for an appointment please remember to sign your child out at the school reception.
