Safety at Drop Off and Collection Times

The school is a very busy place all day but especially at drop off and collection times. In order to make it a safer place for our children we asked a traffic consultant to observe conditions both at the front and rear entrances to the school during these critical times.

As a result of this review it is suggested that any parents dropping and collecting at the front of the school should park on their left and not cross the centre line. Drivers should refrain from turning between the entrance to Duncarraig and the graveyard. Please avoid parking or turning in Old Castle Avenue as this obstructs the view of John, our school warden, as he assists children across the road safely. Finally do not park in the yellow marked clear zones in front of and opposite the school gate.

It is suggested that parents using Carrickbrack Hill and the school’s rear entrance should follow a one way system up Carrickbrack Hill parking on the left hand side only. Please avoid turning and parking in Carrickbrack Park cul de sac and at the corner near the school’s rear entrance. Many older children walk, cycle, scoot to and from school and their views, as well of those of other motorists, are impaired at present.

Please see the attached map for clarification. Thank you to everyone for your co-operation.
