* To encourage parents and other users of the school to park and travel safety to and from
* To look at travel and safety incidents and seek solutions
* To liaise with the local authority over improvements to highways
* To maintain relationships with neighbours
* To encourage children to walk to school
The group meets half termly, when possible, and sends out newsletters when necessary.

* To set up an e-mail address to log incidents
* To look at signage out side school gate and improve if necessary. Completed July 2017

Parking Problems

Parking is an everyday problem for all schools and their neighbours so Leechpool is not alone in this. Many of our parents are considerate and park away from the school or walk and the Travel Plan Team thank them for this.

The persistent offenders park in the school entrance, on the yellow zigzags, across our neighbours drives and on the drop curb corners which is not only inconsiderate but in some cases a traffic offence.
West Sussex has a website where these persistent offenders can be reported. Please use the link below to help remove these problems from our School.
