Clocks back! Dark nights ahead 

We'll soon be setting the clocks back an hour and summer-time will end. The resources below will help remind children, including teenagers, about road safety and keeping safe in the dark.

Keeping Children Safe in the Dark

Dark Nights

Be Bright Be Seen 

We are becoming increasingly concerned for the safety of our pupils crossing Charlotte Street.

There have been a number of near misses, and crossing the road is being made increasingly difficult by cars dropping-off or parking on Zig Zag lines. This makes visibility for pedestrians very difficult around the school gate.

We continue to work with the children and the Road Traffic Agency to support awareness in school, but we would kindly ask the following of all our parents with cars:

  • Please don’t park on the yellow Zig Zag lines or on the edge of the pavement
  • Please drive slowly – be aware that children will often do the unexpected!
  • Please be aware of children crossing or trying to cross the road.
  • Please support us by going online and using the great resources at Think! Education to discuss this important matter with your child and help to keep them safe.
