Parking and Road Safety

Parents are responsible for ensuring that their children arrive at and leave school in a safe manner, whether on foot, by bicycle or by car. The school is responsible for the safety of the children once on the school premises and only within school hours, i.e. from 8.50am to 3.20pm.

  • We have a ‘Park and Walk’ policy, and encourage all parents to park their cars in the nearby Village Hall car park and then walk with their children the short distance to the school.
  • Parking on or near the school entrance creates a hazard for families crossing the road from West Hanney and for other road users.
  • The school gates are closed during the day to protect children, and cars are not allowed to drive across the playground during school time.
