Keep Churchfields ‘car free’ on the school run

Keep Churchfields ‘car free’ on the school run

Starting Monday 19th April 2021

 

Instead of parking on Churchfields we are asking parents that drive their children to school to ‘Park and Stride’ from the Derby Road Car Park (behind Tesco).  A five-minute walk from the school.

 

This summer term the council’s parking team have agreed FREE parking for our parents to give it a go during the following times:

 

  • Morning drop from 8.15am and 9.15am
  • Afternoon collection from 3.00pm to 4.00pm

 

Taking advantage of the ‘Park and Stride’ scheme will have the following benefits:

 

  • Create a car free zone outside the school gates, making it a safer environment for children and families arriving and leaving the school
  • Increase your children’s daily exercise level during the final ‘stride’ to school 
  • Reduce pollution for everyone outside the school gates
  • Provides the opportunity to practice essential road safety skills with your child on the short walk
  • Allow parent drivers to avoid and reduce congestion along Churchfields

 

Thank you for being part of the solution.
