Fairfield Infant School is constantly working hard to ensure the children's safety including at the start and end of each school day.


In order to make school a safer place we ask that parents consider the following;

  • Walk, scoot or cycle to school - We provide cycle and scooter storage at the front of our school site
  • Park and stride - park further away from school and walk the last part of your journey (see attached map)
  • When parking please consider the local residents; do not block driveways, do not park close to junctions, do not cause obstruction.
  • The Highway Code specifies:
    Rule 243 - DO NOT stop or park:
  • near a school entrance
  • anywhere you would prevent access for Emergency Services
  • opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space
  • in front of an entrance to a property
  • on a bend  


Rule 224: Parking on the pavement can obstruct and seriously inconvenience pedestrians, people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs. Please adhere to this guidance.

As part of our commitment to promote walking to school, parking is available at our Park and Stride car parks (See the Park and Stride map below).
