Fairway Infant School



More and more cars…….


Both Fairway Infant School and Copthorne Junior School are very aware of this and take positive steps to teach the children to be safe. However both schools are also aware of the high volume of traffic created by parents transporting their children to and from school.


School Safety Zones have been established around both village schools with a 20mph speed limit in force at the beginning and end of the school day. The zones are clearly marked with flashing lights and road markings and we ask all parents to adhere to the speed limits.


A voluntary one-way system


There are still quite a few parents who have to use a car to take their children to and from school for a number of reasons. This can cause great congestion, especially in Church Road and Fairway. In order to reduce this, both schools encourage parents to use a voluntary one-way system. For Fairway this is for all traffic to travel up from Church Lane past the school towards Bramble Close.

This is a voluntary system. Neither school can accept liability for anything that may occur off school premises.
