As you will be aware Duddingston Road outside Portobello High has a number of traffic calming measures and is therefore quite a narrow road. We are experiencing problems due to the number of cars parked outside the school at the beginning and end of the school day which is making it very difficult for coaches to drop off and pick up pupils. Due to our lack of onsite sports facilities, we use coaches to transport pupils to and from various sporting venues throughout the school day. I would therefore ask for your support in encouraging your children to walk to school.

Thank you for your help in the above matter.
