SENIOR teachers at a Burton academy are making efforts to improve parking by parents after admitting that it had started to become a ‘concern.
Bosses at Anglesey Primary Academy, in Clarence Street, have written to parents asking them to try and ‘help’ the situation by sticking to a set of specially drawn up guidelines.
This move comes just months after traffic enforcement patrols had to be used outside the school in a bid to try and improve the situation.
A spokesman for the academy said: “Parking around the academy has become a concern. We would ask that all parents try to help the situation by following some guidelines.
“Walk to the academy if they live locally to reduce traffic congestion.
“Avoid using the staff car park for dropping off or collecting children at the beginning or end of the academy day and do not block driveways or junctions.
“Do not park on the kerb outside the main school entrances, especially the yellow zigzag lines, as this obstructs parents with pushchairs as well as being a safety issue.
“Thank you to all those parents who do walk their children to the academy, or park sensibly on the surrounding roads and respect our rules.
“We will be working in partnership with the local police team to help make the local area safer during the school run.”
The school has also taken part in the speed reduction campaign ‘20s plenty’ and works regularly with PCSOs.
