Rectory Lane is closed until Monday 30th January 2023 meaning that the road around School Lane could become congested. Please consider parking at the Village Hall. On behalf of our neighbours, please can we remind our school community that the adjacent road (Brunt’s Farm Close) is a private road and should not be used for parking or as a turning circle. Families are welcome to turn around safely in the car park outside of school.
The paths leading to/from our school are narrow with many grass verges and two sharp corners. Space on paths/verges is short because people are being mindful to keep 2m distances too. Please help us to keep our children safe by (keeping our neighbours driveways clear, corners clear and off the path) and – especially around corners. There’s a lot to think about currently, but it’s imperative to keep our families safety at the forefront of minds when travelling to and from school.
The school does not have the power to dictate to parents at the school how they use the highway or other land which does not form part of the school's premises. Schools do not have a "parking policy" for parents; schools cannot police the behaviour of those whose children attend school but can only ask them and remind them to be considerate & courteous and make them aware of complaints received by the school.
Thank you for your support and thank you to everyone who drives carefully past school and who parks considerately around Claypole village – we know the vast majority of you do.
The safety and well-being of the children is paramount. If you have any traffic or parking concerns, can we please ask you to contact the Grantham Rural North Lincolnshire Police Team: https://www.lincs.police.uk/area/your-area/local-policing-team-contact/contact-your-local-policing-team/
