Be a Smarter Parker

Shanklea Primary  are taking part in a regional campaign to promote smarter parking near our schools.


Considerate parking helps to keep our children safe and reduce congestion around the school gates. The ‘Be a Smarter Parker Campaign’ encourages parents to park responsibly near schools and reinforces the message that parking on school keep clear markings, double parking or parking near junctions isn’t acceptable.


We know that parking and dropping off near school entrances causes issues and concerns for schools and also those living near them and it is something that we are trying to tackle by encouraging more parents to leave the car at home when possible and walk, cycle or scoot to school instead.
