Parking and Drop-off

Sunningwell School and Preschool is situated in a private lane shared with private residents and a farm.    The lane is in constant use by resident cars, large vehicles accessing the farm, pedestrians and cyclists.  


To ease congestion on the lane we kindly ask you park away from the school and walk up.  Where this is not possible the following protocal has been devised which focus' on safety, minimising disruption to residents and the farm and making everyone's life easier.


General Safety



  •  park in a manner that would allow emergency vehicles to access the lane, the staff car park and the farm at the end of the lane
  • be courteous and pateint with other road users including residents, farm users and school staff
  • keep your speed down and surpervise your child at all times
  • there is a hidden ditch on the left hand side of the road.   If your car goes into it, it may damage the underside and need towing out.  Please be mindful of this and do not force any other cars onto this part of the road.


Parking Etiquette 

  • There is a one way system on the lane, please wait for a space by the school and use the turning  circle to turn around
  • If no spaces are available then please wait just before the entrance to the school allowing sufficient room for emergency services to pass
  • Park facing down the lane on the school side only (back towards Sunningwell Road)
  • Do not park past the path to the cricket pitch
  • Do not park in the turning circle at the end of the lane - this area is needed for farm access at all times and for other road users to turn around
