It has been noted that parents are parking on the double yellow lines outside the cycle shop, opposite the school entrance on New Road. It is illegal to park on double yellow lines and it makes it dangerous for children to cross the road from the car park as it reduces their visibility to other motorists. Please can we ask that parents do not stop there to drop off children or park there and leave their cars. Thank you.
RINGING IN ABOUT ABSENCES
Please can we remind parents to ring and leave a message about your child’s absence BEFORE 8.30am so the office staff can pass the messages onto the teachers, it also helps to ease the busy period at the office between 8.30am and 9.00am. Thank you.
