Parking and walking to school
All children are encouraged to walk to school or to walk from the designated car park. The front of the school will be kept free of parked cars and, to that effect (and with the children's safety in mind) the road is marked with yellow lines. Parents are requested not to drive up or park in Church Lane between 8.15am and 9.00am and 2.45pm and 3.45pm. Free parking is available in the car park on Chorley Road. There is a patrolled crossing on Chorley Road.
The school is fortunate to have a group of parents who have worked extremely hard to establish a School Travel Plan. The plan covers many aspects of walking to and from school safely. The Travel Plan team meet regularly to discuss progress of the plan.
School Travel Plan
School Travel Plans are developed, maintained and monitored by the whole school community to promote and facilitate sustainable travel for the school journey. The school travel plan sets out practical initiatives and measures to encourage active, healthy, safe and sustainable travel as an alternative to single occupancy car use.
