🚗 Safe Travel Around School Campus 🚗
There is growing concern regarding the number of vehicles picking up and dropping off pupils on the school drive and parking outwith the designated car parking areas at the beginning and end of the school day. A number of near collisions have occurred recently and the safety of pupils has been compromised. In addition, a clear way needs to be maintained for emergency services.
With effect from Thursday 20th February parent and carers are asked to drop off pupils on Dennyduff Road and Alexandra Terrace only. All pupils will be encouraged to use the marked crossings and the designated footpath. Pupils with mobility issues may be dropped off at the school door.
