Message for parents


Provision for Pupils of Key Workers only (children highlighted in the government key workers document) from Friday 27th March and during the Easter holidays will be at Shute Primary School – 01297 33348 or email

The government are advising that, “If it is at all possible for children to be at home they should be”.  Using the school as a care provider should be the last option and only if you cannot keep your child safe at home.  The aim of closing schools is to minimise social interaction and to stop the spread of the virus.


Quick Links

Below are quick links to some of our forms and information.    Forms are also available from school.

More detailed information can be found in our 'Information for Parents' section.

Arrangements for the School Day

We require that all parents park in the village hall or Baptist Church car parks when delivering and taking home their children and not on the roads surrounding the school.  For the safety of our pupils and the school community School Lane should not be used to park, drop off or pick up pupils.  This arrangement is regularly reviewed by the School Governors, Parish Council and our Community Police Support Officer.

Before School

Children should have a parent/guardian with them until a member of staff is on the playground at 8.50am.   Outside doors will be opened at 8.50am.

To encourage independent learning skills in all areas, unless you have an urgent reason to speak to the class teacher then all Year 1 through to Year 6 pupils should not be accompanied into their class or the school building by their parents in the mornings.    This enables the children to organise themselves for the start of the school day.

End of School Day

PIPITS & KINGFISHERS CLASSES – we ask parents to come to the school playground to collect their children.   They will be released only when a member of staff can see the parent/guardian.

JACKDAWS & OSPREYS CLASSES: At the end of the school day the children go directly out of their classrooms to their parents who are waiting.  Parents do not come in to the cloakroom to collect unless collecting from an after school club.
