Parking and road safety

The safety of our pupils, staff and visitors is our primary concern. Working together, we can achieve that.


Car park


Please be very careful when using the car park. It gets very busy at drop-off and pick-up time. Above all, drive slowly to make sure all our children stay safe. Members of the local Garda Siochána from Blackrock Station will monitor all of the road parking regulations. We need your co-operation. Be extra careful when reversing, particularly near the bollards and take your time when arriving and leaving. Please remember that the car park is ‘pay and display’ if parking for longer than the normal drop-off and pick-up.

Most children can be dropped off at the school gate, particularly from First Class up (stop, drop and move off).


Please do not block the one-way system by stopping and waiting.


Think before you park. Only park in the designated parking spaces and please respect the special arking bays by the school gate.


It is dangerous to park near the bollards and railing. Children should use the walkway inside the silver bollards, rather than walk, cycle or scoot across the car park.


Please ask children to dismount from scooters and bikes in the school yard.


School and surrounding area


Newtownpark Avenue is a very busy road so please stay safe by always crossing with the lollipop ladies (school wardens) and at the junction with Stradbrook Road.


Please do not park on double yellow lines or block the driveways of our neighbours.


Finally, please be mindful of other road and footpath users.
