We are brand new school in a brand new development, Green Park Village. We aim for our school to be at the heart of our community.
As we are part of a community, we aim for our school families to be considerate to our Green Park Village resident neighbours and we welcome consideration towards our school families from Green Park Village residents.
Before the school opened, a Travel Plan was submitted. The core themes of this Travel Plan are encouraging walking, biking or scootering to school, and where this is not possible, using public transport (bus or train) or car sharing. The Travel Plan is reviewed within each school year.
Green Park Village has its own designated ‘Green Buses’ and there is a bus stop within metres of the gates of the school. A railway station is being constructed, this time within a five minute walk.
Families who live very local to school in Green Park Village itself are expected to walk to school.
Families who live a little further are encouraged to car share with other families and to use the seven designated drop off spaces in Market Square.
The public transport options can be found here.
The school is fortunate to have the use of seven such pull in spaces, however this is the extent of the parking available as Flagstaff Road is a private road.
Important notice to families and visitors:
Berkeley Homes, via their management company, First Port, use a company- Parking Control Management Limited (PCM)- to administer parking fixed penalty notices (FPNs). These FPNs are used on all of Flagstaff Road (where the school is situated), outside of the pull in spaces.
Parents and visitors are strongly advised to read and understand the parking signs in the area. Please note that evidence to date indicates no retraction of FPNs or sympathy towards school parents who do not adhere to the restrictions set.
The school has been unable to get some of the restrictions lifted to support its families for the small proportion of the day where parents drop off or collect their children from school.
The school does not share parent information with these organisation and has no influence regarding this situation. The school is unable to appeal FPNs on behalf of parents or visitors.

The full Travel Plan is shared with REAch2, Reading Council and local linked agencies or services: Berkeley Homes, Green Park Estates, First Port Management Services and the school’s neighbour, Huntley Place.
