Parking (Stop – Drop – Go)

There is no school bus this year which frees up the bus parking space and the spaces across the road where the bus used to turn. The bus parking space can now be used for a “Stop – Drop – Go” system whereby parents can pull into the former bus space parallel to the school, drop the children off and move on to let the person behind you “Stop, Drop and Go”. This will greatly alleviate the build up of traffic in the mornings and encourages independence for the children. If you do need to come into the school, we kindly ask that you are off the premises by 9.30am in order for the teachers to settle the children. The parking space outside the staff car park is reserved for Sandra, our school secretary, so we would kindly ask you to keep this space free in the mornings.
