Dear Parent/Carers



Concerns have been raised with regards to the risk to our children at the beginning and the end of the school day on Orton Road. We would like to request that you leave enough time to come to school, which will enable you to park well away from all of the school entrances if you are dropping off or picking up your child(ren) at school.


Yesterday we watched two vehicles on Orton Road park across a dropped kerb and entrance to a driveway. Other vehicles were trying to turn around at the top near to the entrance, whilst children were coming out of school. We would like to point out that it is illegal to park across a driveway and access to someone’s property and this can be prosecuted. We hope that you can appreciate that this could impair the safety of our children and so we are asking for your co-operation in this matter.


 From tomorrow, a member of staff will be on duty to ensure that the children arrive and leave our school safely. If any car is seen to be blocking a driveway with a dropped kerb or parking in a manner which we believe to be dangerous to our children, a photograph of that vehicle, along with a note of the vehicle registration, will be taken and handed to the PCSOs.



This action has to be taken in the interest of your children’s Health and Safety. Thank you for your co-operation.



Yours sincerely,








Mrs H King                                                                                                          Mr SJW Powell
