Parking Issues

Thursday 15th February 2018

Dear Parents / Carers,

The Parent Council had a meeting recently and one of the issues raised was road safety outside the school on Liberton Street.

Due to the on-going building works we can only use the Liberton Street gates; therefore, due to the larger volume of people using this one gate and many more cars parking outside it is becoming congested and dangerous.

The Parent Council are currently in the process of arranging to get a permanent railing erected outside the main school entrance as the safety of the children and their families is of upmost importance.  

You may have noticed there are temporary barriers in place at the moment, these are here to deter motorists from mounting the kerb on the zig zag lines immediately outside the school gate whilst they drop off/collect their children.  Another issue raised, was obstructive parking, where motorists are simply stopping in the middle of the road and children are running out of cars into school, this is unsafe. 

The temporary barriers are providing the children with a car free walkway but we need the support of all parents / guardians to make it as safe as possible for everyone.  We are aware most people are considerate and will try to help with this situation. 

Ideally, if we can get everyone to co-operate we felt that the best approach to deal with the problem is to ask motorists to please refrain from parking or mounting the kerb on either side of the zig zag lines and keep the side of the street directly outside the school clear of cars.  There is sufficient parking in streets around the school and across the road from the school gates but please try to keep the one side clear as this would make a considerable difference. 

Many thanks for your co-operation, 

The Parent Council
