Academy Traffic On Site
Dear Parent / Carer,
Wherever possible we encourage our students to walk or cycle to the Academy for the obvious health and environmental benefits this brings.
If you do bring your child by car, please can you note the following:
Dropping your child off in the morning:
- It would be most helpful if you could drop your child off a few hundred metres from school and they walk this short distance in.
- If you do wish to use our roundabout, then we do allow this in the mornings. This works because parents drop their children off over a 30-45-minute period, so congestion does not tend to be a significant issue.
Collecting your child at the end of the day:
- Due to the inevitable departure of students in a relatively short period of time at the end of a school day, it does not work for us to allow parents onto site to collect their child. This is because of the very significant congestion that is caused which leads to vehicles backing up out of our entrance, which in turn then blocks Gainsborough Road in both directions.
In summary, please do not drive onto our school site to collect your child at the end of the day.
Exception: If your child has a disability then please speak with their Head of Year, or Miss Skorwider in our Special Educational Needs Department, who will make appropriate arrangements.
Thank you. Kingswood Secondary Academy
