Road Safety

On several occasions parents and carers have reported delivery trucks obstructing pavements in Cranbourne Street and Dukes Street. Recently the situation seems to have worsened around the start and end to the school day. A lot of the activity is extremely dangerous with children’s safety being put at risk in what are actually pedestrianised roads. Benita Matofskia who is a parent and Governor of the school has been in contact with the council to complain and to discuss ways of improving the situation. Please contact Benita through the school office if you would like to get involved in making the journey to and from school safer. In the meantime please take care on the roads particularly in the areas mentioned.

Samba Playing in the Family Festival
