The Vale Private Road – Significant Building

Work and Health and Safety Concerns

Longhill High School would like to remind the school community that part of The Vale is a private road and should not be used unless you are a resident.

The school has also been contacted by building contractors.  We are sure the community is aware that there is significant building work taking place along The Vale at the moment and throughout the Year. The building contractors have raised concerns with the school around the Health and Safety of our students that choose to use this route to and from school. These concerns relate to the obvious building work but also ash dieback which is effecting many of the trees along the length of The Vale which could result in falling branches.

Can we ask that pupils use the Falmer Road route when making their way to and from school?

Can we also ask parents and careers not to arrange to meet/pick-up pupils on Ovingdean Road at the end of The Vale as this encourages students to use the private part of The Vale?

Thank you for your cooperation.
