Car Park Alterations

As I’m sure you are aware like many schools traffic at the start and end of the day is very busy due to parents dropping off their children and due to a small number of parents who park inconsiderately which just adds to the problem. We regularly review parking on the school site and over the years we have tried many ways to alleviate the problem to make the car park and roads around the school as safe as possible for our children.

One of the key issues that we have identified is the number of parents of small children particularly at the end of the day that have to park to collect their child. This causes problems not only due to the number of parents using the car park but also where they chose to park.

As a result of this, we have looked at how we can provide additional car parking and reduce some of the traffic at the front of school. We have successfully secured some funding from Staffordshire County Council and along with contributions from both schools we have been able to develop a scheme to; provide a new carpark at the rear of the primary school sitting alongside the high school coach park and by redesigning the front car park create a single lane drive through for quick drop off and pickups with a controlled access car park running alongside. Planning permission for this has now been granted and work is due to commence in January 2017. Initially work will begin on creating the new car park at the rear of the primary school with the aim to then begin the alterations to the front of the leisure centre car park during February half term 2017.

We do hope that you will support this scheme which in turn we hope will help us all in managing the issues we face each day. If you would like further details or would like to discuss the scheme please contact either school and we will be pleased to talk it though with you. To view the plans please click here.

Thank you for you continued support and hopefully we can make improvements that help us all and most importantly keep our children safe.
