The College site is closed to cars between 2.45pm and 3.15pm in order to limit the risk posed to the large number of pedestrians leaving the site at the end of the school day.
Some parents who wish to pick their children up at 3.00pm have been choosing to park in the nearby Railway-Sidings housing estate, on Culverhouse Road. Local residents have complained about this parking causing an inconvenience by blocking drop-curb driveways and by obstructing pedestrian access to the pavement, with cars mounting the curb.
We would like to urge all parents who wish to pick-up their children at 3.00pm to use the Tesco carpark nearest the College. There is plenty of room for parking and the children can walk safely to the carpark along Ocotal Way without having to cross the road, which is necessary to reach Culverhouse Road.
We would greatly appreciate it if parents could stop using Culverhouse Road as a pick-up point.
Thank you for your support in this matter.
