Grayswood CE Aided Infant School

Travel

As Grayswood fills its classes to become a full, all-through Primary school for children in our local area, we have put together a plan to reduce traffic congestion and ensure the safety of all pedestrians. 

Things we are doing include:
1. A voluntary one-way system
2. Staggered finishing times
3. Car-sharing arrangements
4. Considerate parking
5. Improved safety plans
6. Kiss and Drop

 

Our voluntary one-way system for parents/guardians at pick-up and drop-off times has already improved congestion. This involves ensuring that all school-related traffic travels along Lower Road, up Clammer Hill Road (Klondyke) and back down The Mount. This greatly helps traffic flow and will do more so the more people who adopt it.

 

Key points:

  • Ensure anyone picking up your children is aware of our guidance;
  • Where it is not possible to walk, try to arrange car pooling, especially at pick-up time after school;
  • Please stick to the informal one-way system from 0820-0900 and 1430-1630;
  • Do not park on Lower Road between the entrance to Grayswood House and the end of the school zig zag lines or at the junction of The Mount and Lower Road;
  • Make sure children cross the road only where the kerb has been dropped and not across the parking bell;
  • If you see another school user not following this advice, please politely inform them as they may not be aware.


If you would like to find out more, please take a look at our leaflet and familiarise yourself with its contents. at busy times and to ask for your help, We welcome everyone's support and cooperation in minimising disruption to road users and residents of Grayswood.

 

Thank you again for your patience, understanding and cooperation in ensuring our children are kept safe, our community is not inconvenienced and we all work together to make things easier for everyone.

This is carefully supervised by Mrs Sally Bloomfield, Headteacher and our parent volunteers. Your child will need to be ready to get out of your car at the edge of the parking bell and, as soon as they are out of your car safely, you will need to drive off immediately down Lower Road.

PLEASE DO NOT TURN IN THE PARKING BELL - THANK YOU

The School Travel Plan – A blueprint for getting to and from the school gate

The School Travel Plan (STP) is a working document that sets out the measures our school needs to take and is taking to reduce the impact of the motor car on school and village life. The STP sets targets for different ways of arriving at the school gate as the school expands and how this may be achieved.
