Use of the Council Offices Visitors Car Park
There is a limited amount of parking in the Council Offices car park and we ask parents to park for only as long as is absolutely necessary. Whilst we appreciate that parents of very young children may wish to see their children into school, it remains important to free up parking spaces for other parents and the general public. Therefore, it is essential that parents who are going to be parked for more than a few minutes do not use the car park.
We have been asked by the Council to request that pedestrians do not take a ‘shortcut’ through their Staff Car Park. Now that there is an extension of Staines Police Station and 12 Police vehicles in the car park pedestrians walking through could lead to dangerous situations - officers would not be looking for children until they have passed the barrier.
Please ensure you do not walk through this Car Park but continue round to the front of the Council Offices building via the main public pavements. Thank you for your co-operation.
During the afternoons it is important to keep parking spaces in the Council Offices car park free for people visiting Spelthorne Borough Council. Consequently, the Council Offices car park may be used for a few minutes only to facilitate a ‘quick collect’. Parents are therefore asked to find a parking space in roads further away from the School, or possibly the car park in Commercial (Staines) Park, and walk a few extra steps. This means that parents who may be collecting younger children from 3.20 - 3.30pm and waiting for older siblings to finish at 4.00pm must not use the Council Offices car park.
When the Council Visitors car park is full, parents must not queue on the access road, which blocks the way for emergency vehicles, council employees and visitors to the Council Offices. In these circumstances please park elsewhere. There are many other places to park in and around Knowle Green, which, with a short walk, will allow safe access. You are kindly asked to observe the recently installed car parking signs in the Probation Trust car park. Please do not use this car park for drop offs or pick ups.
The disabled parking bays are strictly for the use of disabled persons with blue disabled badges, which must be displayed.
In the mornings, older children may be dropped off on the loop in front of the Council Offices where a member of staff is waiting to greet them.
Pupils should be supervised at all times in the car park. Children running/playing, unsupervised, in an area where there are moving vehicles is extremely dangerous.
Parking in the Vicinity of the School
There should be no illegal parking in the vicinity of the School, especially the yellow lines and zigzags at the front of the SPS. (This will be enforced by Spelthorne Borough Council.)
Vehicles parked illegally or inconsiderately may be photographed and shown on this website.
