Disabled Badges and Parking

REMINDER

If a parent or carer has a disabled badge for a vehicle, can this be brought to the School Office as soon as possible please so that we can make a note of the relevant details and ensure that access to our school car park is maintained. Unfortunately, it appears that some drivers are claiming at the barrier intercom to have a disabled badge when this is not the case. This is an abuse of the system designed to support disabled individuals and seems very unfair on all our other able bodied parents and carers who correctly park some distance away and walk on to the school premises. I’m very sorry that the behaviour of a minority of adults is resulting in our need to challenge all drivers more robustly. Please understand the reasons for this challenge and also that disabled access must only be sought if the disabled  individual is in the car and is needing to walk on our school premises.
