We welcome visitors to our school. We will act to ensure that it remains a safe place for children, staff and all other members of our community. If a parent/carer has concerns, we will always listen to them and seek to address them.
However, abusive, threatening or violent behaviour, will not be tolerated. If such behaviour occurs, and we have had such behaviour since we returned to school after the summer break, we will follow the procedures outlined in the London Borough of Havering’s guidance – ‘Keeping Schools Safe,’ and within the schools own policy.

Parking across dropped kerbs
We have been approached by residents in our neighbourhood complaining about parents parking over or across their dropped kerbs.
We have uploaded a leaflet below which states the rules relating to parking outside properties where there are dropped kerbs, also known as vehicle crossovers. This leaflet is designed to help answer those questions.
Dropped kerbs and the law: The Traffic Management Act 2004 states that to park across a dropped kerb is a parking contravention for which a Penalty Charge Notice can be issued. In Havering we only regard “unfriendly” parking across a dropped kerb as a parking contravention. Put simply, if you park in a part of a road where there is a dropped kerb you are committing an offence UNLESS you have the permission of the owner of the property, or properties, using that dropped kerb. It’s all about good manners - respecting the right of property owners to gain access to their homes and in places near schools, it's about the safety of vulnerable children. It is not OK to obstruct communal entrances, for example, a driveway leading to a block of flats that may need to be accessed by emergency services or rubbish collectors.
