Switching Off Car Engines

Parents are requested to please ensure you switch your engine off when parked/waiting around the vicinity of school to drop off or collect children. Although this is not a legal requirement in the Highway Code, it is a courtesy to others as well as being environmentally friendly. The safety and health of the children and families of Bracken Leas is very important to us and we would appreciate your support in respecting this request.
