Routes To School

As you will be aware, we are experiencing a number of issues with cars parking outside of the school, particularly at the start and end of the school day. Can I remind you that the loop to the front of the school is part of the main highway and should only be used as a drop off and pick up point. It is not an area for parking for longer periods of time whilst attending meetings in school or when waiting for passengers. It is essential that any car using the loop is not parked in a position that prevents buses from entry.
We have also experienced students alighting from a bus on Bettws Lane itself as a result of the loop being blocked by cars. This is a significant health and safety risk for our students and the community. If you are visiting the school or are waiting to pick up students at the end of the day, please park in the designated visitor parking spaces which are located to the rear of the school.
It is also important that I make you aware that the Foxglove Meadows site is a residents access only area. This means that the roads into, and out of the Foxglove Meadows site are privately owned by a management company and are designated as resident only areas. Consequently, any part of the Foxglove Meadows development should not be used by students who are walking to school unless they are residents. This area should also not be used as a drop off and pick up point for parents who are taking or collecting students from school.
Please can I ask for your support in ensuring your son / daughter makes their journey to school along Bettws Lane unless they are a resident of this area. The police will be monitoring and enforcing parking in this area over the coming weeks so again, I ask for your support in using the designated visitor parking spaces which are located to the rear of the school.
Yours faithfully
