If you drop off or collect pupils from school in a car you must not stop within the marked yellow boxes outside school within the hours 8.15am – 9.30am and 3pm – 3.45pm. Please do not bring your car into school ground to park on the yard or staff car park in school hours.


The nature of the access roads (narrow, unlit and with no pavements) makes it inappropriate for pupils to cycle to school for safety reasons.

For the same reason we also discourage pupils from walking from the nearest villages.

On no account may pupils bring motorcycles or tractors onto school premises, and pupils using them to drive to school is strongly discouraged. Helmets and other specific motor cycle attire must not be brought onto school premises.


If you have any questions about school transport, you should call Lancashire County Council on 0300  1236738
