Travelling to and from Verulam Safe Driving and Parking

We encourage as many students as possible to walk or cycle to school. These methods can improve overall fitness levels in children and adults. It is a cheap low impact way to exercise. Getting active in our daily lives can have a big impact on a number of health issues.

We realise that some parents/carers have no alternative but to drive their children to school, however, many are driving short distances where walking or cycling is a real option. Even those who have to drive to school can do their bit by parking away from the school entrance and walking for part of the journey.

Please can we remind you not to do the following:

Park on yellow lines, zig zags or block the school entrance
Park on the pavement, across dropped kerbs or residents’ driveways
Park opposite or within 10 metres of a junction
Park where you will cause inconvenience to other road users
Leave your vehicle with the engine still running
Stop in the middle of the road to drop your child off, even for a few seconds. Block the road emergency vehicles and other traffic may need to access
