Dangerous parking at school times

Parents dropping off/collecting children from Charlton Primary park dangerously around the Charlton Heights estate. Blocking driveways, parking on blind bends and junctions. Only a matter of time before a child gets hurt. Been going on for some time, but seem's to be getting worse as the school is expanding.
You should try driving round Stockham at school times, it's just the same:: these inconsiderate, selfish parents park all the way round a blind bend, in a solid line across the top of the turnings, they park all the way down the turning opposite the school so cars can barely get in or out: they fling their offside doors open to load the children with no regard for cars trying to get past them.
How do they expect their fat litle piggies of children (mostof whom, frankly, could do with a bit of a walk to school) to learn about the highway code, respect fo the rights and convenience of others etc etc etc if they don't start teaching by example at an early age?
If schools really can't persuade their parents to have some consideration when dropping off their children, then schools should be forced to use their playgrounds for car parking at drop off/collection time. Or the council should convert some of the many unused grass verges around the schools into parking.
