Inconsiderate Parking - Complaints received

User Rating:  / 0
We have received complaints regarding parking at the opick up and drop off points especially the Newton Street/Fox Street area.

We would remind everyone who uses these areas of our previous advice which was confirmed by Police Scotland.

Be a Considerate Neighbour

Please be considerate to our neighbours when dropping off or picking up children from the new pick up points.

We would ask that you:

Do NOT park across driveways;
  • Do NOT park too close to junctions making turning AND crossing difficult;
  • Consider our new neighbours at all times;
  • Watch your speed when close to the pick up points;
  • Keep children away from the kerb to allow free access on the pavement;

Help unaccompanied children across roads where possible.

  • Thank you for your assistance in these matters.

Work got underway during the recent Easter holidays and Central Building Contractors have made visible progress as can be seen when you pass the old building.

The old staff room has been demolished and the stairs at the former office end have been removed and a hill allows access to ther playground. Classrooms have also been gutted in preparation for the next phase of work to get underway.

We will be receiving photographs from Inverclyde Council shortly and will post these when we receive them.

Police Letter

User Rating:  / 0

The school received the following letter from Inspector Steven Adams at Police Scotland's Community Policing Team.

Police Scotland

Road Safety is a priority concern for Police Scotland, and particularly the safety of children on our roads. Without doubt, I am sure as parents you share our desire to reduce road deaths and casualties.


Recently, concerns have been raised regarding inappropriate driving and inconsiderate parking around the bus pick up/drop off areas for Ardgowan Primary School. The onset of winter results in dark mornings and evenings which reduce visibility for both drivers and pedestrians, and consequently increase the risks for both.

The surface streets around these areas are not suitable for volume traffic and roads engineering is not an option.


Please respect the direction given by the crossing patrols who are employed to ensure the safety and education of your children. I would furthermore request that you drive and park within the law. Please do not obstruct or obscure the road markings.


Officers have been instructed to enforce Road Traffic legislation in these areas and will be in attendance over the forthcoming months.


Steven Adams


Community Policing Team


The Parent Council would remind parents of our article from June "Pick Up/Drop Off Points - Be Considerate" in which we gave advice on how to be considerate to other road users, pedestrians and our neighbours.
