Parking around the school
Please park considerately and safely around the school when you are dropping off your children or picking them up at the end of the day. Keep a look out for all children, not just your own.
Please be kind to our neighbours, remember you are representing our school!
On no occasion should you park in the doctor's surgery car parks - these are for patients with appointments only.
We encourage you to make full use of the free car parks only a 5 minute walk away in Woolston.
