We encourage children and parents to walk to school if possible and we have produced a 5 minute walking routes map.
The '5 minute' zone on this map is approximate and all routes shown are either roads with pavements or footpaths. Copies of this map with further information are available from the school office.
Many families now come to the school from a wider area than envisaged when the school was built 30 years ago, leading to an increase in car traffic. More people trying to park around the school results in greater danger to all children and inconvenience to local residents.We ask parents to observe an informal 'one-way' system, as indicated on the map, and to keep their speed down to below 20mph. There is a statutory 20mph limit outside school in the morning and afternoon.
Please park responsibly around the school, do not park in the areas designated with solid white lines or the yellow cross-hatching or across local residents' driveways. Please do not use the school gate for turning.
Dropping off or picking up children does not afford parents any extra privileges over other road users and inconsiderate parking is a major cause of complaint to the school. Also remember, small children cannot see over cars, so may not see approaching traffic.
Children can use scooters to come to school, but must be very careful around the school gates and must get off the scooter before going through the gate to the right of the entrance to the bike shed.
Pedestrians should enter by the gate to the left of the vehicle access.
We are currently involved with a School Safe Environment Zone (SSEZ) project, Swindon Borough Council's preliminary design for a proposed SSEZ is now Available To View Here....
