  • Friday 25 June 2021 Scawen Road Closure We have had confirmation this week that the road closure outside of school will remain permanent. This is really good news for the safety of our children before and after school and gives them a great opportunity to ride their bikes and scooters straight out of school and into the park. Thank you to the parents and carers who took part in our survey earlier this year. The overwhelming majority of respondents were in favour of the road closure and we passed the survey results onto the council as they had requested.
