Car Park

Dear Parent,

Unfortunately, we had a road traffic incident in the car park this week when one of our pupils was hit by a car. The child was relatively unhurt, apart from a few cuts and bruises, however, this is an incident which has been coming due to the selfish behaviour of some users of the car park.

Every day a number of parents are putting our children at risk through inconsiderate and dangerous parking. It must stop.

Please note the following is unacceptable:

  • Double parking
  • Parking on crossings
  • Parking in the drop off zone
  • Parking out with designated parking bays
  • Stopping and blocking the road to wait for a space
  • Aggressive and angry behaviour – school is and should be a safe haven for our young people and we will not tolerate this type of behaviour from adults using the car park area.

Children are being put at risk by dangerous road users and that is wholly unacceptable. Drivers need to demonstrate greater courtesy, responsibility and respect in the car park for the safety of our children. We ask for your help in achieving this and will take appropriate action to ensure this happens.

School Christmas Card

Last week your child designed their own Christmas card. As a result of this, they will be coming home with a proof of their Christmas card design this week. If you would like to order please complete the enclosed order form and return to school, along with payment, no later than Friday 23rd November.

Money raised from this venture will be going to school funds.

Unfortunately, if your child was absent last week they may not have designed a card due to the deadline for printing.

Thank you for all your support.
