Dear Parents/Carers

The parking outside of our school has always caused problems, as it does at almost all schools. However since starting Breakfast Club the number of accidents/incidents, near misses, and bad parking habits have increased, so much so that we have worked alongside South Tyneside Council to have new road markings added and increased parking restrictions along the front perimeter of the school. We are fortunate here, in that there is so much free parking space on the three other edges of our school perimeter.

We politely ask that all parents/carers follow these new restrictions and encourage you to park along Winskell Road if dropping off for Breakfast Club or Year 5&6 drop off, or on Richardson Ave/Hymers Ave for Year 3&4 drop off.

The spaces on the opposite side of Dame Flora Robson Ave, in front of the upper gate are not restricted however we would encourage you to use the space on Winskell Road instead, that way your child does not have to cross the road at all. We also ask that if you do park there that residents drive ways are not blocked, parents/carers are advised to let their children exit the car onto the path and not directly onto the road and that children who are dropped off are supervised crossing the road if they must cross.

These parking restrictions have been requested to increase the safety of our pupils and their families and we would ask that you follow them and help in making our school environment a safer place for all.


Thank you for your co-operation
