Gate Access to Wyken Croft

17th June 2015

Dear Parents/Carers

We are now almost there and most of the building work and ground work is complete.  All the GATES and ENTRANCES will be open from Friday 19th June 2015.  The plan attached shows the entrances and the best routes to the classrooms.


This is the NEW gate and can be used by anyone coming UP Wyken Croft or who would like to avoid the traffic jams outside school.  Paths will take you to all classrooms.

WYKEN CROFT LEFT GATE (The gate almost opposite Wyken Avenue)

This gate can be used by Year’s R, 1 & 2.


This gate can be used by Nursery, Year’s 3, 4, 5 and 6, Phoenix Club and Phoenix Nursery and for the Main Entrance.


This gate can be used by anyone approaching school from that side of the catchment area

The only changes to the entry/exit to and from the school building will be to Year 3.  Year 3 will enter/exit the building via the left hand door of the Main Hall. Year 4 will continue to enter and exit school via the right hand door of the Main Hall.

All after school clubs will be collected at the main entrance as usual.  School will be open from 8.35am for 8.45am registration.  Siblings will meet parents at the youngest child’s classroom.

We are expecting that the congestion at the front of school will be a lot less but ask for your patience as the new arrangements will take a few days to bed in.

We would like to thank you for your continued support in this matter.

Yours sincerely


Mr Derek Gardiner
Executive Headteacher
