At the end of the school day parents may wait to collect children in the playground. Years 4, 5 & 6 leave school via the main school entrance at the front of the building.

Collection Procedures:
In order to achieve our aims, the following procedures will be followed:
  • On admission to Glebe, parents/carers with parental responsibility will be asked to give names, contact details and descriptions of authorised adults who may collect their children in an emergency.
  • It is the parents’/ carers’ responsibility to inform the school of who is collecting their child and if there have been any changes.
  • With written permission from parents/carers, older siblings, under 16 years of age, may be allowed to pick up their younger sibling if the parent is within visible walking distance of the front entrance.
  • All children must be signed in and out of the school and details must be given of who will be collecting the child.
  • If there is a change in the person due to collect the child, the parent/carer with parental responsibility must telephone, Dojo or come into the school to inform the staff. If by telephone the parent/carer may be asked to confirm their identity.
  • In extreme cases, the parent/carer will be asked to give a password, to the office. The person then collecting the child will therefore need to provide this password for the child to be released into their care.
  • If someone other than the named individuals (who have been given permission to collect) arrives to pick up a child, s/he will be asked to wait until the parent/carer has been contacted to confirm arrangements. If the parent/carer is un-contactable and the time they were due to collect has passed and if the individual is recognised as an authorised collector, the senior member of staff will make a decision as to if it is appropriate to allow the child to leave.
  • In cases where an individual is not permitted to collect the child, we will not allow the child to leave the premises and will alert the parent/ carer straight away.
  • If a member of staff has any concerns regarding the ability of a parent to care for their child (influence of alcohol/substances), they will seek advice from a member of SLT who in turn will seek advice from social care/police before releasing the child from the school.
  • From year 5 upwards, parents can write formally to the school informing them that they authorise their child to walk home by themselves or that they will be walking to an agreed meeting point.


Lunch Time

Children bring a packed lunch from home or have a school meal which they will eat in the hall.

Packed lunches brought from home must be in a suitable rigid plastic container and clearly labelled with the child’s name.

Children may bring a drink to have with their lunch, which must be in a carton, a plastic bottle or flask. Cans and glass bottles are not allowed. Sweets, confectionery, nuts of any type and fizzy drinks should not be included in the packed lunch. We encourage all children to have healthy lunch boxes and reward children who do so. 

Children may go home for lunch, in which case they must not return to school until five minutes before the start of the afternoon session. This is due to fire regulations operating within the school.

School Meals Supervisors support staff during lunchtimes and care for children in the dining hall / classrooms and on the playground / field.


We are part of the National Fruit scheme. All children in Nursery, Reception and Years 1 and 2 have a free piece of fruit every morning, which is eaten at morning break. Children from Years 3 to 6 may bring fruit from home to eat at this time.

Water is available from drinking fountains at break times. In addition children may bring bottles of water from home to drink in class; it must be in a “sports bottle” – either refillable or disposable and clearly named.
