Journey to school and drop off
Many children walk, cycle or use their scooter to come to school. We have a large, secure bike shed by the main entrance and a scooter store on the Infant playground. If you do need to travel by car then please park SAFELY and abide by parking regulations - they are there to keep everyone safe.
