In order to ensure the safety of students, parents and the general public, from Monday 9 January 2017 the Academy car park gates will be locked between 2.45 p.m. and 3.10 p.m. Could we please ask parents not to park in front of the car park gates as this is particularly dangerous for parents and smaller children walking to and from Elm Hall Primary School. Thank you.
