One –Way System

Existing parents already know but I would like to inform new parents to Little Heath Primary of the one way system that unofficially operates around the school during drop-off in the morning and pick up times at the end of the school day. As we are situated in a cul-de-sac we are in a difficult location and if, during busy times, cars try to enter and exit through School Road it can quickly lead to a very congested and dangerous situation.

We therefore ask parents during these busy times to drive along Thornton Road, come through the car park where the church allows parents to park their cars whilst they drop off or collect their children. Then when cars leave they can exit through School Road. If everyone follows this system it means that traffic flows more smoothly. May I also remind parents that they are not to park on the zig-zag yellow lines outside the school from 8.00am – 5.00pm each day and to please switch off their engines whilst waiting to pick up their children.

Building Work

The contractors who were supposed to start work on our water and heating systems were unable to start the project over the summer holidays. The work should commence in the next couple of weeks. I will inform you when I know the exact date.

Yours sincerely,

K.A. Custis
Head Teacher
