Re my note here
The lines enclosing the map pin (including my untagged line, sorry) is a park.
I can’t find how to treat these as a single amenity=park - the boundaries are lots of little bits of boundaries of other polygons or bits of fences.
Is it possible to call this area a park without drawing another object? Or do I put a polygon over the existing boundaries of the park and not worry that there are lines on lines?

You can do both. With a type=multipolygon relation you can use existing ways, but the easier - and maybe better - solution is to draw a new way, maybe reusing the existing nodes where feasable. Don’t connect areas with highways, but it is a good idea to reuse the nodes of a fence.

It looks like you’ve nearly done it - the school is now
https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/8885529#map=17/52.57969/-0.24662 - but there’s an extra bit https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/640502639 that is currently part of the primary school and probably shouldn’t be, and the pre-school also has an extra bit on it https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/403530251 .
The untagged relation that you mention in your changeset comment is
https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/8885531#map=19/52.57956/-0.24648 , by the way. I found that by looking at https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/64137949 and scrolling down to “relations” at the left-hand side. I think when you remove the last way from it (which is https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/640502638 ) it’ll get deleted automatically.

Thanks, Andy, that was really helpful.
All done now, I hope.
