Parking in front of the school remains a problem. Please, please, please do not park in front of the school when dropping or collecting your child. Most parents have been very co-operative in this respect but this reminder is particularly to those who continue to disregard our requests.

We are asking you please to have consideration for all people when you are dropping your children to school and collecting them in the afternoon. Please obey the rules of the road and avoid parking in driveways, on the double yellow lines and on the clearway.

We need to think of the children's safety and to avoid an accident.
Parents who drop their children at 8:50am are finding it difficult to find a place. When you know your child is safe at 8:50am, maybe you could free up the places for someone else especially if your child is older. If you are holding a space for a long-time it might be best to hold one in the car park.
