Junior Road Safety Officers
During the academic year, our Junior Road Safety Officers (or JRSOs for short) will promote road safety, safe crossing and safe travel to and from school. This will be done through competitions, assemblies, undertaking research and communicating to parents through newsletters and the website.
Parking and traffic around school (29.1.19)
We are writing this in relation to the amount of traffic and issues with parking near our school. There have been a number of complaints recently made to Luton Borough Council about the issue of parking and we are asking for you to take note of our advice.
Firstly, traffic around school is terrible! It would really help if you could park further away from school entrances and nearby roads, and walk to school because there isn't enough space. It will also help if people chose to walk, cycle and scoot because, not only will it help the amount of space for cars (and local residents' parking) but it will also help the environment.
Furthermore, it will help the children be aware of their local surroundings and it will make them healthy from the exercise that they will be doing. A teaching assistant in school is quoted as saying: "It's very hard to see people coming in the opposite direction with all the traffic and parked cars. Travelling on the roads around school can be chaotic because of it."
In addition, when parking, please take notice of the lowered curbs because people may have paid to lower the curb to make their drive accessible and easier to get out of. Please be aware of these and park on or next to raised curbs which can be found further down from houses.
To summarise: park further away and walk; be aware of surroundings; and take notice as to whether the curb is lowered or raised.
