Parking at the school

Parking at the front of the school has been an area of concern for several years.
Safety of the children has been jeopardised by inconsiderate parking, cars blocking
emergency access, parking on verges and parking in the staff car park.

There are approx 12 car bays at the front of the school. Parents have been asked to
‘drop off’ only in the mornings, this is ignored by most parents, causing congestion.

The school has received complaints from local residents who have had parents
‘blocking them in’ and even parking on their driveways. When asked to move, a few
parents have responded with verbal abuse. This once resulted in the police being
called. Our neighbours ‘The Grove’, a Day Centre have complained that parents have
been parking in their accessible parking bays, and when challenged, were also been
subjected verbal abuse.
The school is responsible for the health and safety of the children while they are
on school property, consequently, parking is a regular agenda item at governors
meetings. The school has tried to encourage safer parking, with additional signage,                        Above - Parking at front of school

previously they had travelled in one direction.

Some parents use the car park at the edge of Eversley Park. There are footpaths
around the edge, these are narrow and in poor condition. There is no path directly
linking the car park with the back entrance of the school (approx 350m) or the
public play equipment/recreation facilities.

We are currently collecting information as part of the School Grounds Project.           53 - dropped off by someone on way to work
Parents were asked for ideas to improve the grounds. Many parents commented              28 - dropped off by someone not on way to work
about the poor condition of the entrances and the access into school.

Conclusion
In general, walkers enjoyed their journey to school and saw that the main benefits
were health and environment
Many car users expressed an interest in alternative ways to get to school
Many children use a mixture of ways to get to school, dependant on other family
activity, weather etc.
Due to the distances and other social factors, it is unrealistic to expect all of the
parents to walk all of the time.


Monitor and review

The action plan on the previous page is draft.

The next step it to arrange a meeting between the School Travel plan team, the Safer
Routes coordinator and the Parish Council to discuss the plan in detail and agree a
final action plan.

We intend to review the plan in the following ways

1. Gate counts - if the plan is sucessful, we should be seeing a lot more children
   using the Eversly park entrance gates April 06

2. Hands Up survey

3. Redo the Dots map survey - to see if our actions have made an impact in the Hook
   Pit Farm Area



Target

We aim to increase the number of children walking by 10% by April 06
