Parking Outside the School

We are always concerned about the safety of the children and indeed road users more generally. Over the last year we have:


  • Introduced a daily walking bus from the NCCD car park (school funded)
  • Taken part in three walking challenges to encourage parents and children to walk to school (‘20:20’; ‘ 3 a week’ and ‘10,000 steps’, as featured on BCC Radio Lincs recently)
  • Been chosen as one of only eight schools in Lincolnshire to take part in the ANPR (CCTV) parking scheme
  • Asked Lincolnshire parking to consider funding two additional walking bus schemes using the fines collected from the parking pilot
  • Run a scooter day to encourage children to scooter to school (as featured in the Sleaford Standard)
  • Continued to offer Bikewise training to all 90 of our Year 5 children
  • Asked the ‘green’ parking wardens to patrol as regularly as they can
  • Contacted the road safety team on numerous occasions in an effort to reintroduce a crossing patrol
  • Through 'The Wasp', our weekly newsletter, asked parents to consider how and where they park outside the school
  • Worked alongside Sleafordian to consider an additional bus service


We know this isn't enough and are always looking for new ways to improve road safety outside the school.
