As you are aware the Governors have been seriously concerned about the car parking issue within the school grounds and the child safety problems that it has evoked. As a result of these concerns, as with most Merthyr schools now, a barrier has been installed to prohibit vehicles entering the school grounds. With effect from 16th March the barrier will be closed every afternoon from 2:45pm to 4pm. We are sorry to have to take these steps but the safety of our children is the overriding duty of the Governing Body.
