We have been working with a company called NSL in assessing our safety needs and planning how to address them. It became clear that we have a number of drivers who drop off/park on the zig-zag yellow lines outside our Woodland Vale Road entrance.
In order to raise awareness that this zone is not for cars during drop off and pick up times, pupils have produced portraits to remind adults that it is children’s safety that is the issue here.
Additionally, if drivers persistently stop on the zig-zag lines, the following website can be contacted in order to report such action. www.operationcrackdown.org
We have also been able to recruit an additional crossing patrol for the top of London Road. This means that from September we will have 2 manned points of crossing.
We sincerely hope that these measures will go some way in making our children’s entrance to and exit from school safer.
