Kirkhill Primary School

Road Safety and Parking Guidelines

Kirkhill Primary Parent Council
 

Letter to all Kirkhill Primary School Parents, Carers and family Members
from the Kirkhill Parent Council
 Northern Constabulary

Dear All,                                                                                                                                                                                       

After recent concerns raised by several parents, the Kirkhill Parent Council feels it is necessary, in consultation with the Northern Constabulary and The Highland Council, to reiterate the guidelines and rules for traffic moving in and around the School during mornings and afternoons.

Our Children’s safety is at risk due to the morning and afternoon traffic congestion coupled with the physical restrictions of the current road network.

Please:

NO PARKING IN ST MARYS ROAD!
(The road in front of the School)

This rule ensures the road in front of the School is clear of potentially dangerous parked cars, restricting Children’s view of moving cars i.e. MUCH safer for our Children arriving and leaving from the School premises.

Please use the recommended parking/drop-off locations {shown on map overleaf} when taking and collecting your Children to and from School by car.

{Please sign and return this slip/form in your Child’s red folder}

I hereby confirm that I have read and agreed to abide by the above guidelines and rules regarding the access, parking and general traffic movement in and around the School, for the safety of all the Children, Parents and Staff.

Signed:                                                                                                          Date:

The traffic rule around the School

Traffic rule

 

We ask Parents to adhere to the above rules and ensure that the area in front of the School is kept clear from all unnecessary traffic at all times.

NB:
The Parent Council is open to receive feedback on these issues.

The safety of the Children, Parents, Carers and family, in and around the School premises is our primary concern.

Whilst the above plan outlines the current rules and guidelines, we are actively looking for alternative and/or better solutions to the current safety concerns raised regarding the activities of a few Parents when bringing their Children to school by car.

If you have any ideas, or suggestions, then please notify the School or contact one of the Parent Council members.

Example suggestions:
– Create a one-way queuing system clock-wise around Fingask Drive
– Request the Council utilise the green space in front of the school for a safe turning circle
