Welcome to all of you who are sending your children to Tollgate in September.

As you know, transition this year has been very different, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Whilst we know that nothing can replace the opportunity to look round the school and meet the staff face-to-face, we hope that the information we have provided will help the children and families feel welcome and will answer some of the questions you may have.

We will be adding information and resources to this section of the website in the coming weeks so please keep an eye out for additions.

We have also set up a separate email address for any particular queries or concerns you may have. We would much rather you email us than worry about something. 

The email address is:




We are really looking forward to welcoming you and your child to Tollgate in September.


Every good wish,


Stephen Dennis

    Dogs in school!
    Dear Families, I am aware that many of our families have lovely dogs that are brought to school at the beginning and end of the school day. Whilst I am really keen not to be a misery(!), please could you not bring your dog onto the school site...I know many are very cute! However, we have several children and carers who are nervous of dogs and even the best behaved dog can sometimes react and respond in ways that are unpredictable. If you wish to bring your dog to and from school, please could I ask that you meet your child well away from the school gates so that children who are nervous can choose to keep away. Thank you for your understanding, Kind regards, Stephen Dennis Headteacher

    Children's Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement
    Dear Families, Please find attached our revised agreement that we ask our children to sign each year with regard to their acceptable use of technology. Your child's teacher should have shared it already online with your child this week. When the school is fully open we will, as usual, ask the children to sign a copy that will be displayed in every classroom. Thank you for your support, Every good wish, Mr Dennis
