Collingwood Primary School, North Shields - Welcome to Our New School Website!

Pupil Collection Policy

  • Children in EYFS and KS1 must be collected by an adult who is the primary care-giver or who has been given written permission to do so by the primary care-giver.
  • Children in KS2 may walk home by themselves if the primary care-giver has given written permission for this and staff are satisfied that the particular child will be adequately safeguarded.
  • Permission may be sought, from a member of the school safeguarding team, for children to be collected by an older sibling (no younger than 14 years old).
  • The primary care-giver should inform school of any changes to the collection arrangements.
  • A member of staff may decide not to allow a child to go with a particular adult if there are any safeguarding concerns.
  • Parents may provide school with a secret password that only people with the authority to collect children will know (children should not be aware of this password.)
  • In exceptional circumstances, where contact cannot be made with the primary care-giver, a member of staff may decide to accompany the child home - either on foot or in their car with an escort (following the driving risk assessment).
