Uncollected Child Policy

Policy statement

In the event that a child is not collected by an authorised adult at the end of a school day, we will put into practice the following procedures. These are to ensure that all children are cared for safely by an experienced and qualified practitioner. 

The Primary Gate opens at 2.55pm and Primary School Children (inc those in the EYFS) are dismissed from school at 3.00pm. We ask that parents of Primary School Children arrive at school in time to collect their children at 3.00pm.

In the event of a parent being detained and unable to collect their children at 3.00pm Primary School Teachers will supervise children until 3.10pm.

After 3.10pm children will then be sent to the After School Club where they will be cared for and supervised until the parent arrives to collect them.  Parents are entitled to leave children in the club up until 5.30pm latest.

We are happy to provide this service but parents should understand that an Uncollected Child Cost of £10 per child will be levied.

Bookings for After school club must be booked in advanced – any emergencies/last minute bookings (i.e. on the day) will incur the above charge of £10 per child.  

This Policy does not affect Secondary Age Pupils as they are allowed to make their own way home at the end of the School day

Contact details

Parents of children starting at Trinity Christian School must provide the following specific information which is recorded on our Registration Form:

  • Home address and home telephone number – if the parents do not have a home telephone number, an alternative number or emergency contact number must be given.
  • Place of work and work telephone number for each parent (if applicable)
  • Mobile telephone number for each parent (if applicable)
  • E-mail address for each parent (if applicable)
  • Name and address of another person who may be contacted in the event of an emergency (this is normally a Grandparent or other relative)
  • On occasions when parents or the persons normally authorised to collect the child are not able to collect the child, they must provide us with written details of the name, address and telephone number of the person who will be collecting their child.

*We will only let children go home with parents, or with a person whom parents have named, giving information and written permission for that person to collect their child. OFSTED guidance states that this should be a person over the age of 17 years who is deemed to be responsible by the parents.

*In exceptional circumstances we will accept verbal permission (over the telephone) from a parent for another person to collect their child. We ensure that children do not leave the school premises unsupervised.

Parents should be aware that:

  • After the duration of 60 minutes, if we are unable to contact the family/emergency contact person, we will contact the Police and Social Services and act on their advice.
  • Under no circumstances will staff go to look for the late parents, nor will they take the child home with them.
  • Parents will be required to meet with the Head Teacher if the Uncollected Child Policy is implemented more than five times in any term.
  • In the event of the above costs not being paid in full and on time the matter will be referred to the Governing Body for their attention
