Last week, school staff witnessed a ‘near miss’ when a small child ran out between cars outside the school gates on Somerville Road.
Staff are on the school gates at the start and end of the day to oversee the children safely in and out of the school grounds. They do not have the capacity to police parking on the road. Nonetheless, staff have had to speak to some parents about inconsiderate and potentially dangerous, parking, picking up and dropping off and will continue to do so when they are able to.
I am sure you share the school’s concerns about children’s safety and I hope you will support the school in this endeavour by parking only in the parking bays on Somerville Road and leaving the entrances to the school clear.
Thank you for you co-operation and support with this issue.
