CARS / DROPPING OFF 

When dropping students off at school in the morning or picking up in the afternoon, please follow these simple procedures. This should ensure the safety of your children and minimise any negative impact on the surrounding neighbours.

• Please drop off/pick up students inside the school grounds.
• There are specific drop-off spaces at the front of the school.
• Please do not drop off/pick up students outside the front gates.
• Please do not drop off/pick up students at the back gate (Sandpiper Way).

PLEASE RESPECT THE LOCAL RESIDENTS: Please do not park and wait for your child on Sandpiper Way (at the back of the school), some residents are finding it very hard to come and go especially one family who need access for a disability vehicle. Thank you for your cooperation. Diolch yn fawr.

CYCLING 

We are happy to encourage pupils to cycle to school and we have provided numerous bike storage areas for them to be secured safely. Please bring your own lock.

We are delighted to see so many pupils taking the opportunity of cycling to and from school and all the benefits a healthy commute brings. We would also like to bring the following information to families’ attention;

  • Bikes must be ridden safely both on and off school site, consideration for other road users and pedestrians is paramount
  • Cyclists should take all necessary precautions to ensure they are wearing the correct equipment at all times
  • St Joseph’s is strongly recommending that ALL CYCLISTS wear a cycle helmet for their journeys, please see the video links below for advice on how to fit, wear and purchase the right one
  • If any cyclist is seen or reported not riding safely on the highway or school grounds then the privilege of cycling to school will be taken away
  • When riding to school please factor enough time into the journey in order to arrive safely and on time.

Cycle Safety

Cycling can be a fun, healthy and energising method of travelling to and from school and St Joseph’s would like to encourage pupils to choose this option while also providing facilities to store bikes securely and safely. However, those who ride to school must be aware of the real dangers if they do not use the public highway in a safe and considerate manner or ride bikes in a style that is a hazard to themselves and others.

Students who persist in breaking the Highway Code for cycle users will not be allowed to participate in the ‘Cycle to School’ scheme.

Please, would pupils, parents and carers use the following links so that cyclists wear the correct clothing, take all safety precautions seriously and are aware of their responsibility in using the highway.
