Thank you to the vast majority of parents and carers who park sensibly to drop off their children in the mornings and to collect them in the afternoons.

Unfortunately, last week there was an accident on Coldharbour Lane in front of the school where a student was hit by a car. Thankfully the student was not seriously hurt but it reminds us all of the importance of parking with consideration and with student’s safety in mind.

May we please remind all parents and carers when dropping off/collecting students to ensure that you:

  • do not allow students to exit vehicles directly onto the road (particularly where there is no pavement on the opposite side of Coldharbour Lane)
  • park sensibly and safely with due consideration to our neighbours
  • observe the yellow zigzags outside Bushey Meads and Meadow Wood schools (no pulling into the entrances of the schools)
  • ensure that traffic can flow smoothly by not parking near a junction (for example by the roundabout)
  • ensure you observe the speed limits on Coldharbour Lane and consider reducing your speed to 20 mph directly in front of the school

To avoid congestion in front of the school we recommend that if you park further away from the school site and then the students can walk the rest of the way. We have suggested drop off points for the “Park and Stride” initiative as detailed below and would strongly recommend this to improve the safety of all our students.
