Road Safety

WSP Road SafetyWe take Road Safety very seriously here at Parklands. Historically the school has campaigned for extra safety measures along Southport Road as we realise the need for some of our pupils to cross to the other side on their journey home. For some time now we have had both the pelican crossing and the two speed cameras (which cover both ends of the road between the school). We also have staff on duty at the close of school, on the main pupil exit that leads to the buses and the pelican crossing. We would emphasise the need for all our pupils to be road aware whenever they cross Southport Road and to always use the crossing. We also ask that parents insist that their child wear a safety helmet if they cycle to school. It is for safety reasons that we do not permit scooters.

Parklands Phone App

791 Abby Village Bus Service

WSP 791 Bus

A message from LCC regarding their decision to change the timings of the 791 bus service.

Further to the recent issues surrounding the late arrival of the 791 bus service from Abbey Village, it has been decided that it will be necessary to advance the journey by 5 minutes in the mornings to allow the driver to board the increased number of fare paying passengers. The attached letter has gone out to all the pupils who have had a travel pass issued through the county council, the operator (Avacoach) will also be displaying the revised timetable on the bus service.

Link to the LCC letter regarding the re-timed 791 bus service.

The Gate to the Park – important notice

gate closed

Advance warning – the gate to the park will be closed in the mornings as of 17th October for health and safety reasons as work is due to take place demolishing the pavilion. Pupils will need to allow extra time to take a safe, designated walking route to school. Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve the school.
