Pick up and drive through

Please take time to read the following procedures when driving to St Ambrose’s. These have been put in place to ensure the safety of all children and your co-operation is very much appreciated.



Parents are requested to arrive for pick-up from the Church car park no earlier than 2:55 pm and preferably at 3:00 pm. A teacher will be on duty to supervise the collection of children upon parents’ arrival. Should you be wishing to park and come into the school, please do not park in the flow through area in front of the Parish Centre. Please limit your time to picking up only; if you have a meeting at the school or wish to stay and chat please park in Davidson Street to limit car park congestion.


When children are dismissed they meet the teachers on duty on the outside undercover are of the Hall. The children have been told they must sit quietly in the pick-up area and wait for their Family name to be called.


  • Parents are asked to only proceed forward after the car in front has moved off. This means not pulling out to go around a car when they are loading passengers.


  • Should children not be available at the designated time, these parents will be asked to park in the car park or ‘loop’ around. This does not mean parking in the loop to collect your children who have not arrived from their classroom.


The teacher will be on duty until approximately 3:20 pm. Children who are not collected by that time will be taken to the School Office and parents called.​
