Please do not park on the yellow lines outside school or in any position which could be considered dangerous. Our top priority is the safety of children and families.

Staff may ask you to move your car if they believe you are parked in a place which makes crossing difficult for children. If this happens, please remember that they do this with children's best interests at heart.

Thank you.
