We realise parking is an issue outside school and this causes concern for both parents/carers and residents. Please continue to report any incidents via the Northamptonshire County Council website and the police where necessary. We also urge you to please sign the online parking petition concerning parking issues outside school. It is hoped that Northamptonshire County Council will act if enough signatures are received.
