Care on leaving and arriving at school


A ‘Crossing Patrol’ is provided by the Local Authority for children who cross the road in the morning and at the end of the afternoon session. There is no patrol at lunchtime as children should remain on the premises. The children who need to cross the main road should do so at the point where the patrol operates.

There is also a pedestrian operated Puffin Crossing outside the main gates of Richmond School and outside St. Francis Xavier School which are nearby.

Since the School Car Park is small, parking is restricted to staff use. Parents are requested to park on Darlington Road (school side only) and not on the hazard markings or space marked ‘buses only’, leaving immediate access to the School free of obstruction.

Please, while waiting at the school, leave the pedestrian gate clear for the children to use. They are not allowed through the vehicle access.

Wherever possible, we ask parents not to bring cars to school. Darlington Road is dangerous for children and every car adds to the risk. In addition it must be noted that the Police have informed us that they may prosecute owners of cars parked illegally. Please let the Head know on admission if your child is to be transported by bus or taxi to and from school and you will receive details of this service to the villages.   Please also discuss with us any special needs you have regarding access for you or your child.
