CAR PARKING

Car parking is at a premium on the school site. There are visitor parking bays in the Main Car Park; otherwise there may be spaces available in the car park at the rear of the school by the Sports Centre. Please do not park on the school site to collect children at the end of the day.  Please do not do “U” turns in the entrances; please park considerately in areas outside the school and do not obstruct residents’ access to their properties.

CYCLING

We realise that a number of parents would like their children to cycle to school. However, it is strongly recommended that children should have taken a cycling proficiency course before considering cycling to school. This recommendation should be seriously considered as, ultimately, cycling to school by children is the parents’ responsibility. Parents need to decide as to whether their child is competent to negotiate such hazards as may present themselves on the route from home to school and back. We ask that students adhere to the following guidelines;

  1. Students are advised to attend a Cycle Training Scheme (Bikeability), or cycle with a responsible adult if they have not had training;
  2. Students are expected to maintain their bicycles and ensure they are in good working order;
  3. A cycle helmet (which meets current regulations) MUST be worn when cycling;
  4. Students should be encouraged to wear bright, easily visible clothing;
  5. All cyclists must dismount when entering the school premises and push their bike to the bicycle racks;
  6. The security of bicycles is the responsibility of the parent and student and measures should be taken to protect against theft;
  7. The school accepts no responsibility for the safety of the bicycle while on school premises.
