Tonight we held the first in a series of sessions responding to road safety concerns from children, school council, parents, governors, staff and our community. All of whom feel children’s lives are being put in danger.
This is due to a minority of parents/carers/families being irresponsible with their parking. Alongside this we have parents/carers walking up the school drive to access school through the school car park.
We also want to address protecting our children from many of the harmful gases produced by exhaust fumes. The situation is made worse by people leaving their cars idling.
We want to safeguard our pupils, so tonight we began to make a difference! Pupils, parents and staff began the ‘Design a Poster’ competition, whereby 2 winning designs will be made into giant posters to display on the school gates. If you couldn’t make the event last night you can still enter the competition, just complete your poster design on a sheet of A4 or A3 paper, write your name on the back and hand in to your class teacher by Friday 17th May. Good luck and get designing!Let’s make a difference for the children and families of Walkley Primary School.
