Collecting Children After School
Children are asked to wait for their parents in the bus bay area or near the rear car park, where a teacher supervises. You may stop at the bus bay to pick them up, or park in the parent parking area in Cottle Road (by the Kindy and the Tennis Courts) or the rear car park if there are spaces.
The bus bay, the area outside the Library, is extremely busy between 3.00pm and 3.15 pm. A teacher is on duty to supervise this area. If you pick up your child or children from this spot we ask that you follow these instructions exactly.
Enter the stopping area and, if there is a space available, stop at the kerb. Your child can now get into the car.
Please do not park and leave your car while in this position as it causes congestion.
The teacher on duty will not allow children to leave the kerb until their parents get a parking space in the correct position, or until parents come to escort them to their cars.
Be ready to move away as soon as possible so that others can get into a parking space. If a car in front of you moves along, please move ahead into the gap.
If you cannot get a park at the kerb, move round the outside (right hand) lane, park up by the turning circle or turn right into Cottle Road. From here you can enter the stopping area again or move up Cottle Road to find a park in the area outside the Tennis courts.
Please do not stop in the outside (right hand lane) of the Bus Bay… and do not beckon your child to come across to your car from here, because it is extremely dangerous.
For use of the Lower Car park, please follow the signs – in one gate and out the other gate to keep the flow of traffic going.
We ask for your continued cooperation in this very important safety matter.
