  • Parents are asked to drop off at the door and not enter the building.
  • Please remind children to use the toilet before arriving to reduce the use of the toilets during session times.
  • Collection point for all Smiley students will be the external exit of the Black Studio. 
  • Please follow the signs and observe social distancing


FUTURE FACES
We cannot wait to welcome you all back after such a long break. We have made some changes to session times and collection points. These have been put in place to ensure the safety of all staff and students. We understand for some students this can be an unsettling time so please contact us if you want to discuss the impact of any of these changes.

  • The Main door will remain locked until 10.50
