School Day

At Slade we have staggered starts and finishes in order to minimise congestion at drop off and pick up.  This is also to help keep each class bubble separate in order to keep everybody safe. 

All gates are opened/closed by a member of staff on duty.  

Below are the timings of the school day for each year group at Slade:

We strongly advise parents and children to walk, cycle or scoot to and from school.

Where this is not possible we are grateful to have an agreement with Tonbridge and Malling Council where they allow any registered parents or other people with drop off or collection responsibilities to park free of charge in the Lower Castle Fields (Swimming Pool) Parking, less than 200m from the main school entrance either side of drop-off and collection times.
