Very dangerous on Bellevue Road

There has been an accident just outside the school this afternoon because of the very dangerous icy roads. If you are coming to collect children, please walk to the school where possible or if driving, park in the church car park.

A text will go to all households in the morning informing them whether or not the school will be open. However, if you fear for your safety or that of the children, don't risk it. Stay at home!

Safety Notice: 1/11/2010

Notice regarding dropping and collecting of children

It has come to our attention that especially on wet mornings our children are being placed in danger on their way to school. On the Bellevue side the practices of pulling into the school entrance as well as double parking and reversing as children are being dropped are extremely dangerous. In the Church car park please be very careful when parking and reversing and always be mindful of small children. Please do not park behind or at the side of the church when dropping and collecting children.
Do not swing or climb on gates and railings.
Do not allow children to climb gates or railing. Swinging on railings is never permitted.
We are asking for your co-operation in such matters as it is for the safety of our children and the prevention of accidents.
