Keeping your child safe

It’s an offence under The Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984 for a driver to fail to stop for a patroller wearing the official uniform and displaying the patrol stop sign.

It’s also an offence for a driver to move off whilst the patroller is still on the road.

Pelican crossings

In line with the Local Authority Road Safety Officers' Association recommendation, Pelican Crossings are considered safer crossing facilities and so aren’t manned by school crossing patrollers.

Parental responsibility

Please note that even when a school crossing patrol is provided, parents remain responsible for ensuring their child's safety on their journey to and from school.
