It is the responsibility of all of us to ensure that the school car park is a safe environment for children, parents, carers and staff alike. To minimise the risk of an accident occurring and maximise everyone’s safety we request that the following protocols are observed:
Cars should be parked in the car park within a marked bay.
Cars may be parked on the tennis court; please park considerately.
All vehicles should be reversed into car parking bays.
Vehicles are never to be parked in a way that could obstruct entry/exit for emergency vehicles.
A space is clearly marked for disabled users and may only be used by holders of a valid badge issued under the government Blue Badge Scheme. The badge is to be displayed in the windscreen.
Vehicles should not be parked and left in the “drop off” zone.
Normal high way rules apply in the car park (e.g. use of seatbelts and the non-use of mobile phones etc.)
To ensure their safety, children should always be escorted across the car park under supervision of a responsible adult.
Please drive at a speed suitable to a school car park environment. Children are very excitable and therefore unpredictable at the start and end of the school day and unfortunately may not be as traffic aware as everyone would wish.
Please drive carefully and considerately through the villages of Alkerton and Shenington, taking particular care whilst on the narrow approach to school along Stocking Lane.
