Most schools have parking for teachers only, then a system to get people in/out during pick up. Drop off is never an issue.
IN reality this can be a nightmare as suddenly for about 10 minutes you have a huge influx of traffic. The school and parents do the best they can but nobody can build a couple of hundred carpark for 10 mins per day. Some people will use local estates to leave car, run pick up children and then go on. Probably a max of 10 mins parked.
The days of friendly neighbours is gone.....based on this post, the people in this estate would prefer to inconvience themselves to try and block the odd person parking for a few mins collecting kids. It is baffling the lenghts that people will go to in order to annoy a complete stranger
