Parking Letter to Parents

21st January 2019

Dear Parents/Carers

RE: Parking Outside School

Further to recent polite requests in newsletters and via text messages, I feel it is necessary to write to you again about inconsiderate parking, which includes blocking driveways, parking on the yellow zig-zags, and dangerous parking.

On Friday I was contacted by a resident who lives in Mellor Terrace (near the Moorfield site).  Mellor Terrace is a private road and should not be being used by anyone dropping or collecting children at School. Despite this, there have been numerous occasions when cars have been parked waiting in Mellor Terrace and on Friday, this resulted in an unpleasant confrontation taking place. Children, their families and other residents witnessed this upsetting event.

I have also been made aware of a number of near misses in the top car park at the Heath site. This car park is allocated to the staff of the other campus tenants and must not be used, unless you need to access the disabled parking spaces and are displaying the appropriate ‘Blue’ parking badge. Parking is available in the larger bottom car park at the back of the Heath site, off Linden Road; if this is full, you will need to find alternative parking nearby.

I know that the vast majority of you always park appropriately and with consideration for others and probably find the regular communication about this bewildering and frustrating.   If you witness any actions outside school that concern you, please can I ask that you report it to the police using the 101 number.

Thank you for your support and co-operation.

Yours sincerely

Jane Boylan
