Information for Families

Students, families and visitors’ safety and wellbeing are important to us.

Please take note of the following:

Teaching and Learning Time

Student contact hours are from 8:45am-2:45pm daily.  Your cooperation in keeping all classroom interruptions to a minimum is appreciated.  If you need to hold a discussion with classroom staff, please make an appointment . You can contact the Front Office on 61420444.

Student Absences

If your child is going to be absent from school, it is the parent/carer’s responsibility to notify Cranleigh by phone on 61420444, as soon as possible.  If you know in advance of any impending absences, you can write the dates in your child’s communication book or send a note into school.

Sign In/Out

If you are visiting the school, please ensure you sign in at the Front Office and wear a visitor’s lanyard for easy identification.  Be sure to sign out and return the lanyard when leaving.  Likewise, if you are collecting your child early, please sign them out.


Cranleigh has instituted a ‘NO THROUGH ACCESS’ policy for cars during the period that the buses are at the front of the school, both for morning drop-off and afternoon pick up periods. When driving through the school car park, note the speed limit is 10kph.  As parking is limited for parents/carers and visitors, we ask that you park in front of the school on Starke Street, or on Blackham Street.

Keeping Students Safe

During core school hours all external doors are kept locked.  To keep our students safe and ensure they remain where they can be supervised, please ensure all doors are fully closed before you walk away.  Entry and exit during this time is via the main front doors.

Allergy Friendly Policy

Cranleigh is an Allergy Friendly School.  This policy requires students not to bring to school certain products that may cause severe allergic reactions.  Please do not send any peanut or nut products to school.

Sunsmart School

As per Sunsmart schools policy hats are worn when outdoors, till May and from August.  Please send a hat (labelled) for your child to wear on the playground. Every effort will be made to support wearing of hats.  We operate an indoor play policy on extreme weather days.

We ask families to apply sunscreen before school. If you wish this to be reapplied during the day, we require written permission.  Families are asked to supply sunscreen suitable for your child, and have it clearly labelled.
