A Guide to Parking Safely at Our School
Inconsiderate and dangerous parking around our school has become a big problem, putting the safety of children and others at risk.
We all want to keep our children safe, so here are some top tips, if you drive to school, on how you can make a difference.
How Can You Help?
Have You Considered?
VOLUNTARY ONE-WAY SYSTEM
To ensure the safety of our children during busy drop off and collection times, we ask that our parents and carers follow a voluntary one-way system when entering and exiting Featherby Drive.
This one-way system has been used in the past by many visitors to the school, but I am aware that many new parents may not know about it and how successful it is in keeping traffic flowing at busy times.
We ask that cars do not drive against the suggested flow of traffic.
Please make sure that you tell anyone else who drops/collects your child about the one way system.
Your Questions Answered...
Can I double park if I remain in my vehicle?
No. Vehicles parked in the middle of a road, or double parked on opposite sides of a road, cause obstruction for all road users and may obstruct the line of sight for pedestrians and children crossing the road.
Am I okay to park on the zig-zag or 'Keep Clear' markings if I am only there for a few minutes?
No. Under no circumstances should you park on zig-zag or 'Keep Clear' markings at any time. These are there to protect school entrances and leave a clear view of the street for pedestrians.
