Coming To School

Pupils of Hunter’s Bar Infant School must always be accompanied into and from school by an adult.

As an Eco-school, we encourage parents and carers to make use of our successful ‘walking bus’ schemes - we now have three separate routes. Hunter’s Bar Infant School is rightly proud of its daily walking bus schemes, operated by the parents and carers of children. If you are interested in joining the existing scheme, or starting an additional walking bus of your own, please do contact the School’s Travel Advisor for more information on kathryn.harrison@sheffield.gov.uk and on 0114 273 5828

Safety is paramount for our children and, in partnership with Sheffield City Council, we are committed to doing everything we can to reduce traffic on our local streets. So that we also have a ‘Park and Stride’ scheme in conjunction with ‘The Stag’ on Psalter Lane so that parents and carers who cannot avoid driving are invited to park in ‘The Stag’ car park and walk the short distance from there to school. We would ask those parents who do drive to school, to park safely and with extreme care in order to safeguard their own child and others.

Parents are encouraged to make full use of the crossing point on Junction Road which is controlled by traffic lights and of the School Crossing Warden who patrols Cowlishaw Road from 8.30am -8.55am and again from 3.10 – 3.40pm.

Many of our children enjoy travelling to school on their scooters and bicycles and we have cycle and scooter parking in our lower playground.

Parents are reminded that they are responsible for the safety of their own child in the playground, both before the start and after the end of the school day.

The start and end of the day...

Breakfast Club begins at 8.00am daily. Parents can drop in to have breakfast with their own children. Alternatively, parents can book a pre-paid child care place in which your child is provided with breakfast and accompanied to their classroom by a school adult in time for the start of the school day. Please contact Office Administrator, Louise Cunliffe and Breakfast Club Co-ordinator Jeanette Sparkes for more information.

The Wide Awake Club is an early morning learning, or study support session for targeted pupils and their parents. It runs each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning in the ICT suite from 8.10am until the start of the school day. Please contact Inclusion Manager Catherine Carr and Teaching Assistant Claire King for more details.

The school opens its doors at 8.40am. Please bring your child directly to their classroom in good time for the official start of the school day at 8.50am when your child will be registered.

Parents are asked to collect thier child at 3.20pm which is the official end of the school day.

An after-school club called Stay and Play is run on the school site. It operates daily from 3.20pm to 6.00pm and those children attending it are collected from their classrooms by the Stay and Play staff at the end of the school day and accompanied to the main hall where the club is run.
