Walking to School

Parking at collection/drop off times

The council has produced the following leaflet on parking safely in the city.

Park Safely Leaflet

All BPS families have committed to the Parking Pledge to help us maintain good relations with our local residents and with the council. All of our parents have agreed:

  • To ensure I/we do not access the school via the Droveway under any circumstances.
  • To arrange a car share with other parents whenever possible.
  • To park in designated areas around Hove Park and its surroundings.
  • To ensure my vehicle does not block the driveways of local residents.
  • Where possible, to support the School’s Travel Plan by allowing my child(ren) to participate in walk to school initiatives, scoot or cycle to school.
  • Where possible, to walk to school with my child(ren) to allow the development of road safety skills and/ or use public transport.
  • To take part in a ‘Park and Stride’ scheme so that I park 5, 10 or 15 minutes away from the school entrance and walk the rest of the way.

Thank you to everyone for signing the pledge and helping to keep our streets safe for our children.
