Our Travel Rules
Do walk to school whenever possible.
Do park and stride - park a few minutes away from school and walk, scoot or cycle the last part. You could park on Bridgewater Road, Springfield Road, St Katherine’s Way or in the Meadow Road / Egerton Road area (which is linked to the school by an alley). Please refer to the travel map for details of where to park outside of the exclusion zone.
Do use the morning drop off zone when you can - for children in Year 3 upwards, a member of staff is at the bottom of the drive daily and you can drop your older child and go.
Do follow the one-way system - at drop-off and pick-up times. Please drive clockwise to school. Go up Haynes Mead and down Bridle Way. This is marked on our travel map.
Do drive slowly – we are in a 30 mph zone but 20 is plenty around a school. And the school driveway is 5 mph.
Don’t be a Road Monster - your children say it best – if you haven’t already seen it then PLEASE do click here to watch the Road Monster video.
Don’t park or drop-off on the yellow zigzags or double yellow lines – they are there for a reason. Stopping for even the shortest time isn’t allowed. The police can fine you for parking here.
Don’t park or drop-off on both sides of the road - we need to leave plenty of space for emergency vehicles and buses so please only park on one side. On Bridle Way, please only park on the left as you go down the hill.
Don’t park on the pavement / grass verges or blocking driveways - we need to allow clear access for pushchairs and wheelchairs on the pavement, clear access for residents to their driveways / garages and also ensure that we don't damage grass verges that our neighbours maintain.
Don’t park on the school drive, or in the school car park between 07.45 and 16.30 - and please don’t use the disabled spaces (unless you have a permit).
Don’t block or cover residents’ driveways – if your car doesn’t fit in the space, please do not park there.
