If you have any concerns or complaints regarding parking issues, please report registration numbers/incidents to the school office, Northamptonshire County Council and Northampton South West Police via the following links:

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please show consideration to our residents and parents/carers when parking outside school. We also ask that you drive slowly, 5MPH, on the school driveway.

Please do not park on both sides of the road outside of school as this prevents emergency services from accessing this road. Do not park on the zig zag lines or block driveways. Please show consideration for our local residents and think about the safety of ALL OUR CHILDREN!

Thank you to the majority of parents/carers who do park and drive considerately.
