Some children do need to be driven at least some of the way to school. But there are alternatives to being driven from front door to school gate to be considered. Find a place to park 5 or 10 minutes walk from the school, this could be a shop or community hall and ask permission to park or drop off at ‘school run’ times.
The child can then walk to school with parents or friends. Walking some of the way gives the child a chance at a little activity, teaches the child vital pedestrian skills and takes away traffic congestion from the front of the school making it safer for everyone else on foot.
