Sir Robert Hitcham's CEVAP School, Framlingham - easy access sloped pathway

Yes! It's true!  We can't quite believe it either but the proposed plans for the new extension to Sir Robert Hitcham's Primary School in Framlingham is to include the creation of a tiered platform of steps from the College Road entrance of the school to the playground, making it even more difficult for pushchair and wheelchair access to the playground.

Although the New Road entrance appears more suitable for wheeled access, when attempting entry to the school along that route we are faced with pavements blocked by cars, wheelie bins, and a narrow school gateway that isn't wide enough to accommodate the number of people accessing the school premises, we are therefore forced to take small children on the road into the path of oncoming traffic.

Some of us have waited for over 15 years for easier access to the school site.  A sloped pathway is needed at the front of the school for easy access to the playground, not only for parents and childminders with pushchairs, but also for the children who arrive by bus every day and struggle down the steps on their own carrying their bags, swim kits, and musical instruments, and particularly for the children and adults with disabilities who find it just that little bit too far to walk around to the back entrance of the school.

This isn't a petition against the planned extension to the school, but a petition against the installation of more steps and instead a request for a sloped pathway as a greater benefit for the school community.
