On this morning, the road leading to the school gate will be closed to all non-exempt motor vehicle traffic from 8.15am to 9.15am, and the school community will be encouraged to take part in this experience by walking, wheeling, or scooting to school.  

Aldrington Primary will be taking part in the Council’s School Streets programme in the 22/23 academic year when an option will be developed to implement a School Street scheme on a more permanent basis.

Parents and carers, pupils and local residents are encouraged to come and see how the school street works and chat to the team who will be available to answer questions during the closure period.
