On Monday of next week a Boom gate will be installed to the entrance to the staff carpark. This has been necessary due to the ongoing use of the car park by a number of parents dropping off and picking up their child/children-which is prohibited and clearly dangerous. Early next week the boom gate will become operational and will only be accessed by staff, disabled car park users and other DfE personnel. The gate will operated by an access card issued to appropriate people. In the event that a parent has to come to school for an emergency and the gate is down, contact can be made to Sarah in the front office, via an intercom, so she can lift the boom gate. The gate will be down before and after school, during those very busy drop off and pick up times and up at all other times. This action has the full endorsement of our Governing Council.
