I am becoming increasingly concerned with how busy the staff car park gets at the end of the day, particularly when after school clubs finish. Many parents are using the staff car park and this coupled with children who now cross the car park to leave school is a health and safety risk. It is, in my opinion, an accident waiting to happen. In order to safeguard every child whilst on the school site I am once again asking that you do not use the staff car park to drop off or collect your child at any time of the day unless you are a blue badge holder.
To help this even further the following changes will be implemented from Monday 19th November:
The side gate near the main offices will no longer be open at the start or end of the school day. Access to the playground will therefore only be via the two side gates.
Children who attend after school clubs will no longer be dismissed from the main entrance and instead will need collecting from the playground door near to the mosaic. The side gate next to the bike shed will be opened from 4:00pm each night to enable you to collect your child.
When children are late back from a trip or sporting event they will be dismissed from their usual door unless otherwise stated.
I am sure you understand the reasons behind the changes and thank you in advance for working with us to ensure safeguarding children remains of paramount importance.
If you would like to discuss this matter further then please do contact me at school.
