Drop off and Pick up

*Due to Covid-19 precautions, we have different drop-off & pick up procedures in place until further notice.

School starts at 9am and ends at 3pm

Your child should arrive in time for school to start at 9:00 am.  Our playground gates are opened at 8:50am and locked at 9:15am.  P1-P3 children should use the south playground, and P4-P7 children should use the north playground.

If the weather is wet, your child will be escorted into class where they are supervised by school staff and P7 monitors.

Our gates are opened at 2:50pm to allow access to the playground to collect your child.  Your child should know who is collecting them each day.  We will look after younger children in their class / at the office until they are collected.

We ask that when you are dropping off or picking up your child that you please park responsibly.


Car-Free Zone

Bankhead Primary School has been chosen to be part of the GCC's Glasgow School car free zone pilot starting in August 2019.

Between the hours of 8.30am-9.15am and 2.30pm-3.15pm, both Caldwell Avenue and Broadlie Drive will be strictly pedestrianised (excluding cycles and emergency vehicles) during the school term.

We ask that you please respect the car free zones during pick up and drop off for the safety of the children.
