On Tuesday 3 May our new staff car park will be in use. The entrance for this is via Pyotts Copse so there is going to be additional traffic on this residential road. If you currently use Pyotts Copse to park your car, could you please consider using either the South Car Park at the Chineham Shopping Centre or the outside tennis court at the Hampshire Court Hotel. We are aware that there have been near misses on Pyotts Copse, particularly at the entrance from the mini roundabout on Great Binfields Road as this access road was not designed to have vehicles parked on it.
The first layby on Binfields Farm Lane is needed for vehicles bringing our VI and PD children to school, and also for external providers who bring children from Breakfast Clubs or collect them for after school care. We also need to ensure this layby is kept clear for any emergency vehicles like ambulances or fire engines who may need to attend any incident at school.
We are very grateful to the parents who have started leaving their cars away from the immediate vicinity of school and who are walking the short distance from the parking we have arranged. Your cooperation is helping to keep our school a safe place at the start and end of the day.
We have now come to the end of phase 1 of the project and you will see a lot more activity on Binfields Farm Lane from Tuesday as this will become the main hub for the contractors Balfour Beatty. Exciting times - the next New Build Newsletter will be issued shortly giving you more information.
