Do disabled people have a right to park on the school park?

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by Duplobrick, Jan 15, 2011.

  1. I'm not talking wheelchair bound.
    We have 2 parents who park on it (and at some speed) but should they? A number of elderly grandparents also pick up as do heavily pregnant women they don't park there. Should the disabled get priority and what happens if 6 disabled people turn up.
     
  2. car park
     
  3. The simple answer is probably not.
    Schools are private property. If the car park is for the exclusive use of staff and visitors (not parents dropping off kids etc), then it would be best that this was made clear via signage and newsletters etc.
    In my experience as a HT we have occasionally made exceptions to this rule for disabled parents of young children or for parents of disabled children. But we have made these exceptions clear to everyone.
