Collection Arrangements

Changes to collection arrangements

All parents have completed a Confirmation of Collection Form.

If you have made an arrangement for another parent or person to collect your child, for example, they have a play date, please ensure that you email info@skps.org.uk before 2pm  as to who is collecting your child.  We do not allow pupils to go home with another adult, even if the pupil recognises the person collecting them, unless a parent has given us permission for this to happen.
