Session Times & Term Dates

Barming Primary School

Diary Dates 2021/2022







Dropping off.

Children will continue to enter the school as they have been doing so.   Drop off points will remain in place:


Yr R:   via the side entrance.

Yrs 1 and 2:   via the Breakfast and After School Club Door.

Yrs 3 and 4:   via the door to the right of the main school office entrance.

Yr 5:   Ruben class via the door by Ruben class’ cloakroom   /   Empire class via the door between Empire class and Mr Laker’s office (door into Empire cloakroom).

Yr 6:   Sunrise class via the Year 6 cloakroom door   /   Russet class via Russet fire exit door.


We will keep the pathways as they are but with a few tweaks:

Years R, 1 and 2 via the left hand side pedestrian gate and Years 3 to 6 via the right hand side pedestrian gate.   One way system will not be in full operation e.g. parents do not need to go off site in order to re-join another year group path.   Parents can just join another path.


North Street gate can be used by anyone who lives nearer to the North Street Entrance, but please remember social distancing for the time being… we are not out of the woods yet and I know the Government is still unsure what will happen this winter.


Drop off times will remain 8:35am to 8:50am.


Parents to drop and go in order to continue supporting the alleviation of parking issues around the school and will continue to leave through the vehicular access.


Amendment – I (Mr Laker) will cover the North Street gate every Tuesday in order to ensure that I see the majority of parents per week.   I will continue to spend more time at the Main Entrance as the majority of our parents use this.   If either Miss Rootes or I are not around another member of the SLT will be at one of the gates, so please feel free to find one of us if you have a query or a concern.
