As you are probably aware, Shutts Lane is very busy at the beginning and end of the school day.

In order to improve arrangements in the morning, from September we will keep the ‘inner bay’ of the bus bay clear, for use by parents dropping off students.  This should reduce the number of parents needing to park on Shutts Lane.

Please note that this arrangement cannot operate in the afternoon, due to the number of buses needing access to the bus bay simultaneously.

We hope that the new morning arrangement alleviates some of the safety concerns arising from the volume of traffic.  As a reminder, the following rules remain in force:

  • do not park on the yellow zig-zag lines outside school
  • do not park at the junction of Shutts Lane and Monyash Road, which causes a serious blind spot for cars pulling out of Shutts Lane

Thank you for your co-operation.
