Road safety and considerate travel

School crossing patrols

We provide schools in the borough with a Crossing Patrol person - someone to help you and your children cross busy roads.

Drivers who do not stop for the School Crossing Patrol Stop sign may be fined £1,000 and gain three penalty points on their licence.

Please contact us if your school would like a School Crossing Patrol. We will consider the area and may carry out a survey to establish the number of vehicles and the number of children crossing the road when the school opens and closes.

We look for the best way to help pedestrians - for example, it may be more helpful to install traffic calming measures rather than providing a School Crossing Patrol. 

If you would like to apply to become a School Crossing Patrol person, please contact us on the details below. You will need to attend an interview, pass medical and eye sight tests and have a police check before you can be appointed.
