Road Safety Monitoring
 

Main issues

Cars stopping in the middle of the road to pick up children therefore stopping the flow of traffic causing stationery traffic.

Parents parking on zigzag lines.

Cars parking on the corner on double yellow lines.

 

School solutions so far

The Student Council went outside for three days to observe the problems and to conduct this road safety scrutiny.

It was quite plain to see how dangerous it was while doing this we noticed that while the pupils were out on the pavement conducting the survey that cars did not stop on the zigzags.

At the Student Council meeting they discussed the possibility of pupils going out on the pavement wearing high visibility vests to be a presence to deter cars stopping on the school entrance.

There are always at least two members of staff and one SMT member helping the pupils cross the road.

 

Impact of school solutions

Since this half-term there have been four Student Council pupils on the gate along the full length of the zigzag lines.

This certainly does seem to have had a positive impact and cars do not park on the school entrance while the pupils are there.

The Student Council frequently meet to discuss varying school issues. One concern relates to the improvement of the bike sheds and the Student Council on the 23rd March 2016 wrote to the Headteacher raising their concerns.
