Supporting Our Local Community

 

I am sure you will agree that we are incredibly lucky to have a school in the middle of greenbelt and a conservation area and I know all our students, staff and parents share a pride in the beautiful location of our school.  Wolverley is also home to a large number of residents and some thriving local businesses with local and regional trade as well as some tourists.  As the school goes from strength to strength and numbers in the school continue to rise, the traffic in the village and local area becomes more challenging and problematic.  We are very well supported by ‘The Lock’ who are understanding of parents using their car park as we try to avoid traffic coming through the village and the sandstone cutting.  Please could parents and carers be mindful of our unique and very special location when arranging transport to and from school.  Here are some ideas and suggestions that will help to ensure our impact on the local community remains a very positive one:

 

  • Encourage walking or cycling to school where possible.  It is a healthy way to start and end the day.
  • Organise lift sharing.  It is more environmentally friendly, more economical and will reduce traffic significantly.
  • Drop off a little earlier and pick up a little later.  Students will have a few minutes more at the start and the end of the day and it will be less stressful as there is less traffic.
  • Consider using the bus service which offers discounts when purchasing a travel card.  Details on our website.
  • Drop off at the Wolverley Community Hall to reduce the traffic at The Lock which has a priority to its customers.
  • Avoid dropping off in old Wolverley village as this causes congestion and disrupts the tranquillity of our beautiful village.

I am very grateful for your support and I am sure that you understand the need for us to be sensitive to others in our community.  I am very grateful to The lock for their ongoing support and patience and they are reassured that we are working with you to reduce any impact on their business.
