Disturbances during school hours

We would like to ask all parents/guardians to have consideration for pupils and teachers and  please do not allow younger children/siblings to run around the school grounds playing. before and after the 2pm and 3pm pick up, but to remain outside the school gate. This has become increasingly obvious during the last few weeks of good weather as the class windows have been open and/or classes are taking place outside. Both pupils and teachers have become distracted by the noise and movement, and find it difficult to concentrate. We would like to remind parents that younger siblings are not covered by insurance while  playing on school property and ask for your cooperation in this matter.
