  • When lining up to enter the school premises. please observe social distancing - we have floor markings to help with this
  • A member of staff will greet you at the gate and we ask that you say goodbye to your child there for them to enter the building independently.
  • They will use hand sanitizer as they enter the school premises

If you have children in different groups across school please collect all of them at the time of the oldest sibling

Please do not block the gate entrance or congregate in small groups to ensure social distancing is adhered

We kindly request that you do not drive up into the school grounds, unless you are a blue badge holder


Our children from the surrounding villages have access to a bus service provided by the county council, please contact Nottinghamshire County Council if you require information.

We understand that most of our pupils travel to Ranby in a car due to our rural setting.

We kindly request that you respect our neighbours and park safely and avoid the area close to the school drive


 The Office and other concerns/queries

A member of staff will be available to answer quick queries when you drop off in the morning and can take any messages that need passing on.

Mrs Kinsella will be able to deal with issues 1:1 in the office - but only if these are issues that cannot be sorted over the phone or via email. Please avoid going into the office foyer area where at all possible, but if you do need to enter please adhere to social distancing measures. - office@ranby.notts.sch.uk


Visitors into school should be kept to a minimum and visits are by appointment. Where possible, these should take place outside of school hours. We understand that there maybe occasions where parents wish to see a member of staff, and we will do our best to facilitate this but unfortunately in most cases this will not be a face to face meeting.
