Parking Outside School Gates – Child Safety!

The Highway Code states: “You MUST NOT wait or park, or stop to set down and pick up passengers, on school entrance markings.” (Highway Code rule 238, Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.)

We have painted yellow ‘zig zags’ road marking outside our school for a very good reason – the safety of your children.

Any cars stopped or parked on the restricted area can hide small children who are about to cross the road. The children may not see approaching cars, and approaching motorists may not see the children.

Do not park or stop even for a short moment on these markings.

 Please do not stop in the morning and allow your children to get out of the car by the gates and cross the school vehicle entrance, this is in constant use before school by staff and Playaloud breakfast club drop offs.

 Thank you for your support.
