At the end of last term, the Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) launched our Park Smart Campaign. Their number 1 goal is to stop people from parking on the zig-zags or the double yellow lines outside the school gates. Dropping off here is also not acceptable or legal.

On the final two weeks of term we worked with our community Police Officers as well as Parking Attendants who are all in full support of the campaign.

Unfortunately we were still witnessing… random three point turns on the T-junctions as families were crossing, cars parking on the yellow lines, cars on the pavement and excuses such as “we were only stopping for a minute” and “we’re running late so it’s fine”.

We want outside the school to be a safe environment for everyone and we would like to thank all adults that already park further away and walk the final part to the school grounds.
