School Access & Parking Plan

School Access is by Fordcombe Village Green.  There is a limited amount of parking near to the school and we would ask that you ensure you park legally and with consideration for others when parking to bring your children to or collect them from school. Please also make sure that anyone else who is responsible for taking your child/children to and from school is aware of the Access & Parking Plan. The School Access & Parking Plan is detailed below.


The tarmac area (D) in front of the school is a road not a pavement. Therefore parents should behave accordingly when they are standing on it or crossing it, as cars may be passing at any time. Please remember to keep your children safe by keeping them close to you at all times.


Another area of concern is people parking too close to the corners of the junction between the tarmac area (D) and the main road. This makes it very difficult for cars to pull out safely. The Highway Code does state that you shouldn’t park within 10 metres of a junction.


The area in front of the bus shelter must be kept clear on Tuesday afternoons for the Swimming Coach and on the mornings and afternoons of any school trips.


Paul and Jackie from the Chafford Arms have kindly given their permission for parents to use the pub car park during the morning school run and afternoon pick up (3.30pm), but please note, at school pick up parking is only permitted on the road side of the car park. Please do not park in the pub car park at lunch time or during meetings as it is needed for customers.


Please do not park on the double yellow lines around the village, they are there for road safety reasons.

No Stopping on the Zig Zag Lines between 8.30-9.30 and 15.00-16.00.


Many thanks for your consideration.
