Magdalen Meadows Double Parking

We are again experiencing issues with double parking in this area. This has resulted in complaints from local residents as well as hampering deliveries to Bracken Leas. In order to try and address the issue, Mr Possinger will be actively patrolling the area and asking people to move on if they are double parked. For reasons of health and safety we must ensure that there is sufficient access for emergency vehicles to the area surrounding our school. Whilst we appreciate that parking close by is at a premium, we ask that parents and carers park considerately.

Furthermore children should also use the Zebra Crossings on Pavillons on their journey to and from school.  If your child walks to school on their own, please ensure that they use the crossings and know not to cross between parked cars. Unfortunately, a parent has recently been observed encouraging their child to do this.
