Whilst Nightingale Primary School offers a vast range of facilities, unfortunately our on site parking is limited. We therefore ask all visitors to the school to park on the roads in the local area. If you are bringing heavy equipment into school, please contact the office before hand for the gate access code.
The school provides parking for school staff. The gates to the car park are kept closed and locked between 9.00 in the morning and between 3.30 in the afternoon to minimise traffic movement at these peak times. Staff arriving outside these times should park on the roads adjacent to the school. Staff are encouraged to reverse park into the designated spaces where possible.
The school does not provide access or parking on the school site for parents, with the exception of disabled parents or where there is an individual safety concern. Parents who are dropping off children before 8.15am to attend the breakfast club may drive into the school car park to do so.
Children are not permitted in the school car park at any time unless they are accompanied by their parent / guardian. Children are not permitted to open / close the gates for vehicles to gain access / exit.
Deliveries and Contractors
Wherever possible, deliveries to the school should be arranged outside of the school day and delivery drivers are provided with the gate code. Access is provided for contractors, but this should be arranged outside school hours where possible.
After School Hire
Parking is provided to clubs hiring after school for their parents / staff although the hirers are responsible for ensuring that safe practices are in place and adhered to.
School run events will be considered on an individual basis as to whether parking is available for parents for the event if necessary.
There is an expectation that all vehicle users on the school site drive with care and caution in recognition of the likely presence of children on the school site.
