Health and safety of the children is our first priority so please continue to be vigilant when you park around the school.  We have buses dropping off/picking up children from most areas so it is paramount we do not park in the bus designated area or the mobility park, or on yellow lines. U-turns  on Yewlett Crescent are not permitted during the drop off/pick up times. We have also noticed a number of high vis-vests are missing – please check at home and return any school high vis-vests as soon as possible.
