Parking and crossing

To Parents/Carers

It has come to our attention that there has been an increase in unsafe parking and crossing at the school, and it is quite a concern – one we fear may end in a tragedy.

To help everyone get to and from school safely you can park at:

* Asda – Official school Park and Stride (drop off/pick up only)
* David Lloyd. (drop off/pick up only)

We know the weather is getting colder and wetter but parking at the school gate on either side of the road causes a hazard for our Crossing Guide in ensuring children cross safely. Please don’t double park or park on the pavement or in disabled parking bays. With one of the pavements out of use in Glenarm Place this is even more dangerous.

We understand that anybody who has mobility issues needs to park safely as close to the school as they can. The Parent Council have raised this with the City of Edinburgh Council and outstanding issues with our safe route to school. 

When crossing the road please use our Crossing Guide. You need to cross with her at her post – she cannot control the traffic if you are crossing from further down the road or standing on the corner of Western Harbour Place.

If you have any concerns or you wish to discuss this further please get in touch with Parent Council at

Thank you
