RE: Parking Outside School
Car parking at the beginning and end of the school day is a problem at most primary schools. Children and parents arrive and depart in a relatively short period of time and this causes congestion.
Our local PSCO is aware of the issues regarding parking outside schools and regular makes visits to the schools in our area.
If you witness any actions outside school that concern you please can I ask that you report it to the police using the 101 number.
What can you do to help keep everyone safe around the school ?
Block the road, emergency vehicles and other traffic may need access
Park on yellow lines, zig-zags or block the school entrance
Park on the pavement, across dropped kerbs or residents’ driveways
Park opposite or within 10 metres of a junction
Expect drivers to reverse on to the main road
Park where you will cause inconvenience to other road users
Leave your vehicle with the engine still running
Stop in the middle of the road to drop your child off, even for a few seconds
Please walk to school if you can. If you have to come by car, try to share trips with friends or we can use the car park next to the community centre. Parking on restricted areas or mounting the pavement is a traffic offence.
Thank you for your support and co-operation.
