St Lucia’s School Council News – ROAD SAFETY

The School Council has met to review road safety issues outside our school and effecting our school children. They have been looking at ways to highlight road safety awareness for the pupils and the parents at St Lucia’s.

A number of parents have raised the following concerns relating to road safety:

  • Cars parking in the restricted pull-in zone at drop-off and collection times
  • Cars completing turning manoeuvres in this zone and/or the staff car park
  • Cars parking on the road and pavement opposite the restricted pull-in zone

The aim for the school is to re-establish and maintain a safe zone for pupils by:

  • The school council promoting a flyer and poster competition within their classes, which will be judged by Shropshire council’s Road Safety Officer Mr Ray Hughes. The flyers will be sent home to raise awareness and gain parental support.
  • Mr Ray Hughes has agreed to run a whole-school assembly on road safety and awareness.
  • Shropshire Council representative David Gradwell has visited school to look at the issues and will be proposing options for renewing the road markings to create a safe zone.

The School Council would like to receive any comments or observations from parents relating to these concerns and issues. Please email
