If I pick the kids up (often they come home on the bus) we'll stay for about 20 minutes or so.

We head straight home for afternoon tea and homework. Then she has outside play with her brothers until dinner.
Our school playgrounds are totally out of bounds of an afternoon.

Head straight home. If we want to meet up after school, we walk to the closest park and meet there.
Our school playground is out of bounds after school (issue because a child fell and parents tried to blame school because there was no teacher on duty, this all happened after school.)

I have done both. It depends on the day what I have to do. What mood I am in. Who there's. Amount of homework the big kids have etc?

I toss it up between going straight home, having a play on the playground while I chat or going for afternoon tea at the cafe across the road with some friends.

When Ds was in primary school sometImes we went straight home. Sometimes we hung around. Sometimes we would meet at the park for a mass playdate.

I work at OOSH- we alternate our open area days to suit the "crowd".
I.e. if parents are hanging around and using the equipment (which they actually are not supposed to do) we keep the kids indoors or restricted to the softfall area.
It sucks on the days that we are rostered to use the playground- as the kids get so excited to use it and then can't.
On the days I collect straight after school, we go straight home or to activities.
