Drop-Off System from September 2019
Over the Summer holidays, we will be having a control barrier installed at the entrance to the car park. This will give us much greater control over vehicles entering the site during the day and alleviate the congestion which occurs frequently in the staff car park. It will also help to safeguard pupils and families at key points during the day as they are walking across the school site.
From September, when the barrier is closed, access to the car park will be gained via an intercom link to the school office.
From September, drop off will open at 8.45am and close at 9.00am. The barrier will open automatically for drop off to begin, allowing access to the loop around the staff car park. The barrier will close automatically when drop off ends. Please do not block access to the car park outside of these times, and please do not block vehicular access along Bristol Drive.
Access for parents using Bubbles will be unaffected by the barrier. To drop your child off at Bubbles in the morning you will use the intercom to gain access. I would remind all parents that Bubbles offers childcare provision outside of normal school hours. If you require such provision, Bubbles can be contacted on 01522 692000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the end of the school day the barrier will be closed and parking on the school site will not be permitted for the collection of pupils. During the school day, should you need to collect your child (in cases of illness for example) you will be able to gain access via the intercom. We are confident that the installation of the control barrier will help to improve pupil safety on our school site and thank you for your understanding and support in this matter.
