Parking in school drop-off zones – Butley Drive and Galloway Crescent
Please do not park in the drop-off zones at the front and back of our school. Do not leave your car there. If you need to visit a classroom, you must park further away and walk.
We have had many incidents when cars have been left in the zones and parents have walked their child into school or likewise, left the car to collect children from the classroom at 3.00pm.
These drop-off zones are there to allow quick and easy drop-off and pick-up by our parents, not parking.
