Cars on Site
After 8.40 a.m. the school entrance will be closed and you will need to park off site and walk into school.
Cars arriving before 8.40 a.m. may drop children off adjacent to the pavement in the region of the School Bus waiting zone. Children should then enter school through the wooden gate below the Nursery.
If you wish to enter the school with your children you may park in the lower junior playground, however, you need to be aware that you will not be able to leave until 8.55 a.m.
Alternatively, you may use the visitors’ car park (top car park); however, if the visitors’ car park is full, you should leave the site and park elsewhere.
At the end of the school day
The lower junior playground will again be available for parking from 3.00 p.m. until 3.45 p.m. Please remember that you should not be able to exit from the lower playground until 3.30 p.m. when the barrier will be removed.
Please be considerate to our local residents and honour all road markings which are designed to maintain access and pedestrian safety. There are problems with car parking causing congestion in the entrance lane. This is a no parking area. Please do not park here as it can obstruct school buses causing them to mount the pavements.
