Parents and carers urged to follow safety rules at Barony Campus

Parents and carers of children and young people who attend the Barony Campus are being urged to be mindful of road safety and follow agreed access arrangements.

The Campus has a ‘park and stride’ policy in place. This means that children and young people who attend Lochnorris Primary and The Robert Burns Academy should not be dropped off in the Campus grounds. Parents and carers should park five to ten minutes away and allow their children and young people to walk the last part of the journey.

There is strictly no access to Underwood Road and no opportunity to turn safely.

The only vehicles permitted to access Underwood Road via Auchinleck Road are:

  • Campus staff

  • Cherry Trees Early Childhood Centre parents and carers

  • Vehicles approved by the East Ayrshire Council to transport children and young people

  • Blue Badge holders

The drop off/ pick up area to the front of the main reception area should only be used by parents and carers of children and young people attending Hillside School and authorised school transport.

The movement of traffic on Campus has been carefully designed by road safety experts to protect the children and young people, particularly the youngest and most vulnerable. The one-way system must be adhered to at all times.

Due to ongoing road safety issues and indiscriminate parking, the Ayrshire Roads Alliance will be carrying out patrols over the next week and parking restrictions will be enforced.
