As you may be aware, the school is working very hard to try to reduce congestion at the school gates. We hope that by doing this, the school gates will be a safer place, thus enabling more parents to walk their children to school.
We understand that not all children are able to walk the whole way to school, due to distance, parental work commitments or a variety of other reasons. One way in which we hope to help you is by setting up a Park and Stride scheme. This is a simple initiative, where parents/carers are encouraged to park their car (no more than) a 10 minute walk from school and then walk the rest of the way with their children.
We are therefore asking parents to park at Peel Park (look out for our Park and Stride banner- see image below) and walk the rest of the way to school. If for some reason this is not a suitable parking place we encourage you to choose another suitable place 10 minutes away from the school gates and walk the rest of the way.
If you have any queries regarding the Park and Stride parking point, please don’t hesitate to come in and speak to the office.
