School Opening and Closing Times

 

At present, Chellow Heights School (both South and West campuses) opens at

9.00 am and closes at 2.45 pm for all full time children.

Due to the high level of traffic on the Heaton/ Belle Vue Education Campus we need to have children away from school by 2.50 pm and so start to load the local authority PTS buses and taxis at 2.40 pm.

Our nursery children attend part time, either

a morning session

9.00am to 12.00pm

or

an afternoon session

11.45am to 2.45pm

Parents who transport their own child are asked not to arrive on site too early in the morning as you will get stuck in the Belle Vue traffic. We also ask you to arrive on time at 2.45 pm to collect your child.  On Chellow Heights West the traffic from the other schools closing at 2.30 and 2.50 pm means you will be stuck in the Belle Vue  traffic which can delay your journey home by up to half an hour due to the number of schools in the locality. We each have a time slot and it helps if we all abide by these. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

The majority of children who live at a distance from either Chellow West or Chellow South are brought to school by the Local Authority Transport Service - PTS. The school has no control over their arrangements and parents should contact them directly if they have any questions or concerns. We will however support you in any way we can to ensure that your children have a safe and happy journey to and from school.

Part time attendance due to medical need or mental health need.

Occasionally, due to the medical needs of pupils we are asked to make special arrangements for pupils attendance. This may be a requirement for them to start later, finish earlier or have a different pattern of attendance to ensure they remain as healthy as possible to learn. We are happy to accommodate these arrangements where they are requested directly from a pediatrician or a consultant.

Dual Placement Schooling

For some pupils, due to their needs, they may be educated on two sites. The 'parent' site is in receipt of the money and provides the support for the other site. This is different from children accessing learning opportunities through our co-location with other schools. This opportunity for dual placement needs the agreement of both schools and the Local Authority SEN Placement panel. It can only be organised through an annual review of a child's Statement of Educational Need as it  requires the Statement to be altered to include the dual placement. Statements are being converted to Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs)and for those pupils who have an EHCP it would need to be outlined as a need on there.  Where a dual placement is agreed it should be noted that schools do not all have the same occasional and training days. The 'parent' school will not be able to provide support for a child to access their education on the other site when the parent school is  closed for training days. This is because its staff must attend the training held in their school. The parent school will however, provide a place in school on the days it is open and the other school is closed to pupils.  

For requests to support changes in transport please contact Cathy Sabelli at school.
