Just a quick reminder of the system for parking in the lay-by outside school. There are three lanes in the lay-by –
- The lane nearest to the main road and the shrub border, together with the middle lane, is for staff and visitor parking, so please keep these lanes free for staff arriving at work in a morning or needing to leave promptly at the end of the school day.
- The third lane nearest to the pavement is allocated for parents to drive through, drop their children off without getting out of the car and then proceeding on. If parents have very young children in baby carriers, etc., then it is possible for them to park in the middle lane.
For all other parents who wish to park their car, come into the playground and stay for a period of time, parking is available at the Sports Hall.
If parents choose to park on the roadside, please be considerate to residents living close-by the school. Local residents have complained about parents/carers parking in front of driveways at school drop-off time, so that they are unable to get in or out of their drive. Also, access is often blocked to Sycamore Cottages, which is the road opposite school and residents and other service vehicles have been unable to get through. Please can we ask you to be considerate of where you park and avoid blocking any resident’s driveways or access routes.
Many thanks for your co-operation.
