Amesbury CE Primary School


At Amesbury CE Primary School, we continue to review and adapt where necessary the extensive safety measures in place to keep members of our school community safe and compliant with latest Government guidance.

We recognise that some of the measures we have put in place may take some time for our families to get used to.  We are grateful for the support of parents as we have put necessary safety precautions in place, in particular the changes to entrance and exit points at the start and end of the school day.

The information on this page outlines the school's position on the adjustments to the normal school operation look like. These procedures and routines are subject to change at short notice in response to National and Local Authority guidance.

The school will endeavour to communicate any changes to the intended offer at the earliest possible opportunity. If you have any questions or require assisstance in complying with these measures please do not hesitate to contact us.

Where do I drop off and pick up my child?

Each year group of pupils has an allocated zone and separate drop-off and pick up point. Please make a note of your child's zone/entrance. There will be a member of staff at each entrance to direct you or take messages for class teachers.

YEAR 1 & RECEPTION - PINK ZONE – the side gate on School Lane

YEAR 2 - RED ZONE – Main school gate on Kitchener Road

YEAR 3 - BLUE ZONE - New Hall entrance on Cold Harbour

YEAR 4 - BLUE ZONE - Playground gate entrance via Cold Harbour carpark pedestrian gate

YEAR 5 - ORANGE ZONE - Staff carpark gate on Kitchener Road (entrance closest to Smiley Face Nursery)

YEAR 6 - ORANGE ZONE – Drop off lay-by on Kitchener Road, pedestrian access only

If you have more than one child and they have been allocated bubbles in different zones, you should drop off the youngest sibling first then make your way to next drop off point for the next child. Siblings will not be permitted to enter through the same entrance if they are in different zones.

Please adhere to the 2m social distancing markers whilst you wait.

We thank parents for their patience during drop-off/pick times as we take these necessary safety precautions.
