Parent's Information

Coming to School

Knighton Normal is situated in a very busy built-up area. Traffic is particularly heavy at the times when children are on their way to or from school. Every care is taken to promote road safety. We ask that you actively support the following school safety rules:

When children start at a new school it is important that they know the safest route to take and the proper places to cross roads. It is recommended that younger children take the route many times with an adult before completing it on their own.

We request that pedestrians who enter the school from Knighton Road use the gateways to the north of the vehicle entrance.


Leaving School

Once children have arrived at school they are not permitted to leave the school grounds until dismissal time at the end of the day unless parental permission is given to a teacher in the form of a written note.  If they have to leave for some reason during the school day, it is preferred that you collect and return your child from the classroom and do not ask for them to walk home unaccompanied.  Please also call at the school office and sign the register.
Children must return a signed consent form prior to any class or group trips away from school.

Bicycles

We prefer children not to ride to school until they are in Year 4. The wearing of bicycle helmets is compulsory. We ask children cycling to school along Clyde Street or Cameron Road to dismount and walk across the Clyde St pedestrian crossing and walk their bicycles from there to school along the footpath. The roundabout is very dangerous for cyclists and the periods before and after school are the busiest times of all.

No bikes are to be ridden inside the school grounds.
 
Skateboarding/Rollerblading/Scooters


Skateboards, roller blades and scooters are not to be ridden in the school grounds at any time.  Scooters are at school at the owners risk.

Playing with Friends after School

Children who wish to go and play with their friends after school must have arranged this activity with both sets of parents the day before. They may not ring their parents from school for this purpose.

Gates

The school gates are unlocked by 7:00 am each school day and locked at 6:00 pm
