It has joined 10 others schools in a Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council road safety campaign.

Pupils have been given green ribbons bearing slogan “Make our day – park further away!”

Mayor of Solihull Len Hawkins said: “This scheme is fantastic and I really hope parents take on board the message the message printed on these green ribbons.

“Parking illegally or inconsiderately not only causes inconvenience to local residents and undermines a school's efforts to be a good neighbour, but also creates road safety issues, including danger to pedestrians crossing roads.

“I really hope people start to think about where they park on the school run and do so more considerately – even if it means parking a little bit further away.”
