Car Park Safety

It is timely at the commencement of a new term, and with new families joining our school community, to reiterate to some and introduce to others, the traffic management procedures for drop off and collection of students.

 

The importance of these rules cannot be stressed enough to ensure the absolute safety of all children and families at all times, especially at these extremely busy peak periods of car park use in the morning and afternoon. Please ensure all other authorised adults who may drop off or collect your child/ren on your behalf, are aware of the following requirements.

 

Please Note: Parent/s or Guardians MUST adhere to the Frogmore and Simeon Road 40 km per hour and the car park 10 km per hour speed limits.

  • Please be patient and courteous at all times.

  • Please follow traffic directions and do not drive past barriers or over traffic cones.

  • Please be mindful, for the safety of our community, parents are not permitted on-site beyond front reception.

 

MORNING EXPRESS DROP OFF

  • Please enter the car park via the second entrance on Simeon Road near the electronic school sign. As you enter, veer to the left so to drive down in front of the reception entrance.

  • Parents are NOT to get out of their car when using the express drop off.

  • Please drop students off as close to the ‘far’ end of the express drop off zone as possible, closest to the side school gate near the Canteen Cola. This will allow a maximum number of cars to use the express drop off at any given time, especially during peak drop off times between 8am to 8.30am.

  • Please ensure students are ready to alight out of the car and have easy access to their school bag.

  • If your child is unable to alight from your car without assistance, please enter the car park via the first entrance and park in the top car park. Please walk your child/ren to the second pedestrian crossing for safe passage to the school gate. DO NOT use the first pedestrian crossing that runs through the express drop off zone in front of reception.

  • The top car park is NOT to be used as an alternate express drop off point. Please park your car in the allotted car spaces to allow your child/ren to exit the car safely and without holding up traffic.

  • There is to be no drop off in the car park near the pedestrian crossing in the morning. Either use the express drop off or park in the top car park and walk your child/ren to the school gate. DO NOT use the first pedestrian crossing that runs through the express drop off zone in front of reception.

 

AFTERNOON EXPRESS PICK-UP

  • Please create an A4 sign with your surname and have it clearly displayed on your car dashboard.

  • Please enter the car park via the first entrance on Simeon Road and follow the instructions by staff on car park duty.

  • Students using the express pick-up are required to wait under the Canteen Cola until their name is called over the PA system.

  • If your child/ren are not ready to get into the car when called, you will be required to drive around the circuit again as it’s imperative we keep the express pick-up moving. Please do not be offended if asked to go back around to rejoin the line for express pick-up.

  • Parents are NOT to get out of the car when using the express pick-up as staff will assist your child/ren into the car.

  • Please ensure your car remains stationary before car doors are opened.

  • A Crossing Guard is strategically positioned at the lower pedestrian crossing to provide safe passage for parents collecting their child/ren at the school gate. DO NOT use the first pedestrian crossing that runs through the express pick-up zone in front of reception.

  • It is imperative that people using the crossing adhere to the crossing rules and do not attempt to cross the road unless the Crossing Guard is in the centre of the crossing, most particularly when cars have been given the right of way.

 

Thank you for your attention and patience.

 

Yours in Christ
