6th September 2016
Welcome to the new academic year at Samuel Lister, I hope you have all had a restful summer holiday.
I would like to thank you for your patience with regards to the arrangements for drop off/collection of your child/ren at the beginning and end of each school day. The new build is progressing well and is on schedule for re-opening on 1st March 2017.
The arrangements for parking in the Nuffield car park have worked well over the past 15 months, the Health club have very kindly allowed our parents to use their private car park (members only) at the end of each school day. We have staffed the access road to the school site to ensure that traffic congestion is minimised and students leave the site safely, no construction traffic is allowed to enter the site at peak times.
However, the past few days we have had some complaints that the traffic is not clearing as quickly and Nuffield have said they may have to withdraw their offer of using their car park for parents/carers. This would cause a major inconvenience to all concerned and we would like to resolve the issue as quickly as possible in the following ways;
Please try to park legally off site on the surrounding streets leading to the school where appropriate (taking care not to block anyone’s driveways or on any yellow lines)
Please consider sending your child/children to and from school on our designated bus services/service buses (we have numerous services which cover the majority of areas in Bradford) Please enquire for more details by phoning the Academy number for an application form.
Park respectfully in the Nuffield car park and allow their members priority when leaving the car park as they pay a membership fee to use the facilities
Thank you again for your continued support.
