Essential Info from Scott Primary School

Contact Numbers

Please make sure that you inform the office of any changes to contact numbers immediately, so that we can contact you in case of any emergency. Thank you.


We have a dedicated School Uniform page:- Scott Primary School Uniforms. Please do ensure that all parts of the uniform are clearly named – it takes so long to try and match jumpers, socks, shoes, lunchboxes, water bottles etc. etc to the correct child!

Allergies and Dietary Requirements

If your child has any allergies or dietary needs, when you inform the school (in writing) would you please provide a passport size photograph so the kitchen staff can immediately identify your child. 

School Closures 

If the school needs to close for any reason, please follow the links on our Announcement page.  Please note it is very rare for us to close due to bad weather.

1st Day Absence

You must telephone the school on the first day of any absence from school – 01234 352630. This needs to be followed up in writing on your child’s return. 

We do encourage children to come in if they are just ‘under the weather’ etc as we find school can be a distraction.  We will contact you immediately if they need to be collected.

Collection of Children in Years 1 & 2

Please wait away from the steps as this tends to cause congestion when the children are coming up to the playground. The best place to wait is over by the play equipment so that staff can see you.  Can you ensure that children do not play on the equipment whilst waiting and also please do not sit on any of it (particularly the wooden train) as it can cause wear and tear.

If you have older children from the North Pole site to collect please use the path across the field (by the chicken coop).

Collection of Children in Years 3 & 4

Children in years 3 & 4 are collected from the North Pole playground furthest away – please go across the Year 5 & 6 playground and follow the walk way around the school and wait for your children there.

Collection of Children in Years 5 & 6/Walking Home

Please collect children from the North Pole playground just past the bike sheds.

If your child is to walk home you must inform the school in writing.  For safety reasons we will not release any child without this and we do encourage them to walk with other children too.

Mobile Phones – Children in Years 5 & 6

We understand that if Year 5&6 children are walking to school they may have a mobile phone.  This must be handed to the school office every morning and collected at the end of the school day.  They must not be used during school hours.

We do not expect children in younger years to bring any mobile phones to school.

Mobile Phones – Visitors 

For safeguarding purposes all visitors are not permitted to bring a mobile phone into our school.  You will be provided with a secure locker at reception, for which you retain the key, and you can collect your phone when you leave.


Please remember that there is no parking or drop off area on the school site. The car parks are for staff only. Also, please do not park across the school gates or block pavements as this causes a real hazard for our children.
