Now that the dark & icy weather is definitely with us, this a good time to remind everyone of general road safety measures to keep everyone safe.
If driving children to school, please remember to park safely and sensibly by not parking on or near street corners, not to block driveways and not to stop on the lines outside the school gates.
Remind children about crossing roads safely and to take extra care when checking for traffic which cannot stop so quickly on icy roads.
Cyclists (and pedestrians) should wear clothing which is clearly visible to drivers, and bikes should be fitted with front and rear lights.
Be aware that roads may not have been gritted by the time your children are coming to school, so watch out for black ice and take extra care.
We want everyone to arrive safely for school so please remind children (and adults!!) of good road safety practices.
Let us all do our bit to keep everyone safe.
