Parking around the school at drop off and pick up times have been highlighted by children, parents, teachers and residents as problematic. The main issue is congestion, owing to pavements and school entrances being blocked.
We encourage children and their parents/carers to walk to school whenever possible and teachers regularly reward children with the ‘I walk to school’ badges across every term.
Walking has many benefits from improving our health to learning about the environment and gives everyone the chance to see friends on the way to school.
School are supported by Durham Constabulary in monitoring the parking and continue to work with us to improve safety for the children.
