We would respectfully ask that all parents who travel to school by car be mindful of parking etiquette and safety.
As a school in a busy residential area, we work very hard to maintain a good relationship with our neighbours.
We have received complaints from both residents and businesses in Pickard Close regarding parents parking dangerously and/or causing obstructions.
While we acknowledge that the parking situation around school is difficult, this can never justify illegal parking. The areas around the school are an area of high footfall, much of it consisting of school children making their way to and from school. Parking illegally in this area puts the safety of all children at risk and increases the likelihood of accidents.
Free car parking is available at Asda for a limited period and we would encourage parents to make use of this. The walk using the rear footpath is both pleasant and quick and also provides an ideal opportunity for children to get some fresh air and exercise before and after the school day.
Thank you for your continued co-operation.
