Dogsthorpe Academy

Times of the Day

The Academy day starts at 8.45am when the Academy doors open. The gates to the playground open at 8.30am. Parents have responsibility for children until 8.45am. There is a member of staff on duty from 8.30am in the playground.

Access to the playground is via the pedestrian walkways at the side of the Academy and Infant School. Gates to the Academy car parks are locked at 8.30am and 3.00pm to ensure that cars are not moving on the site while children and families are entering and leaving.

Children and adults arriving by bicycle or scooter must walk as soon as they enter the Academy site to ensure safety of all others. There is a lot of space in the cycle shelter for bicycles to be stored safely and securely. Children should make sure they have locked a bicycle to a stand; our bicycle shelter is locked at 9.00am each day.

Parking outside the Academy is extremely difficult and we work very closely with the police and PCSOs to ensure that traffic regulations are enforced.

Please do not bring dogs on to the Academy site.

The Academy day ends at 3.15pm and parents / carers should collect their children promptly from the playground please. Year 5 and Year 6 Children should be collected/ leave from the gates at the front of school. Year 5 are collected opposite the Post Office and Y6 are collected opposite the Pharmacy. If you would like your child to walk home without being collected please give your permission on this form Click here
