The school promotes a healthy lifestyle and sustainable transport and we would like to remind parents/carers of the importance of planning your child's journey to school. We would ask you to consider the following options for your child's journey:
Drop off and Collection by Car
Due to the lack of space on site, parents/carers cannot park and wait on the school site to drop off or collect their child. There is a drop off and pick up zone in car park 4 (Arena entrance) for drive-through only.
Please consider our neighbours when driving to and from the school site and where possible encourage your child to walk, cycle or use public transport to help ease congestion and promote a healthier lifestyle.
The school is easily accessible on foot from Herne Bay Town and Greenhill. For their own safety, we would recommend that students approaching the school from the Town Centre use the footbridge over the Thanet Way or the controlled Toucan crossings.
If your child wishes to cycle to school they are welcome to do so. We have cycle parking available on-site, however, the Governors cannot accept any liability or responsibility for any loss or damage incurred using the facility. Parents/Carers should ensure that a strong, lockable chain is provided and the cycle has adequate brakes, reflectors and lights as required by the Road Traffic Act 1983, and that brakes, reflectors and lights are in full working order. We would also recommend that a cycle helmet is always worn and the cycle is insured under your home contents insurance policy and security stamped with your postcode.
It is not recommended that cycles are left in the facility overnight. Please contact the school office for more information.
