Parking and traffic outside of school

Dear parents and carers,

We have had significant issues this evening with regards to parked vehicles and traffic flow outside of both of our school yards (facing onto Dame Flora Robson Avenue and Richardson Avenue)

This poses great concern for our pupils being able to leave school safely.

The matter has been discussed with A/Sgt Collinson from Northumbria Police, South Tyneside road safety team and the traffic management department who are all aware of the situation.

We ask that if you need to collect pupils from school in a car, that you find a safe place to park, reducing the risks of the events this evening. We remind you that the yellow zig zags directly outside of school gates should be kept clear at all timesĀ and there should be no parking on double yellow lines.

The local neighbourhood team will enforce traffic bylaws and wardens have been informed.

Keeping our pupils safe is our absolute priority.
