Please park considerately and safely around our school

Keep other road users and pedestrians safe around our school - park considerately and safely.

Could we please ask all parents / carers who have to travel to school by car to park safely and considerately around the school site. 

It is vitally important for the safety of all road users and pedestrians that cars are not double parked or abandoned on double yellow lines.

This is not only inconsiderate to other road users it is also dangerous.

Our neighbours in the roads around school such as Mill Lane, Atherstone Street and Brook End should also not have their driveways blocked or be inconvenienced in any other ways by parents / carers parking around school

We are aware that parking wardens have been on patrol in and around school in recent weeks to enforce parking restrictions.

We know parking around our school is particularly difficult given its location and we would urge all parents / carers to walk to school where possible and take advantage of our staggered start and finish school times which have been retained in order to reduce congestion around school.

In the morning pupils can enter school any time within a fifteen-minute period from 8.40am onwards with gates closed at 8.55am.

EYFS and Key Stage 1 pupils are dismissed at 3.05pm followed by Year 3 and Year 4 pupils at 3.10pm and finally by Year 5 and 6 pupils at 3.15pm.
