School Travel and Parking Safety
Yesterday we emailed parents reminding them that Old Charlton Road is currently the only pedestrian access to and from our school.
It is essential that parents do not block or narrow the path by mounting the kerb to park between the school gates and the bottom of Connaught Hill.
We have experienced a high volume of cars doing this at the end of the school day which is creating a dangerous situation for our pupils as they walk away from school.
The current road closure between Burgoyne Heights and Dover Castle also means that we are frequently experiencing a high number of cars mounting the kerb to pass other cars as our pupils walk on the path. We are currently in discussions with Charlton Primary School to reopen a Barton Road entrance and exit for some of our pupils and hope to update you on this very soon.
Please wherever possible (for the safety of our children ) make arrangements to meet your child where there is more space rather than directly outside the school gates.
