Junior Road Safety Officers
We want to keep the routes to our school as safe as possible for pupils walking and cycling to school; we also want to make sure local residents are not inconvenienced by inconsiderate parking. If we work closely together we can make a difference.
Burnbrae Primary run PARKSMART campaigns, a school gate congestion initiative, throughout the term. Our campaign is supported by Police Scotland.
THIS CAMPAIGN WILL ONLY BE SUCCESSFUL WITH YOUR SUPPORT AND CO-OPERATION.
If you drive to school, please park away from the immediate school zone or even better allow your child to walk/cycle to school, even part of the way. If it is absolutely necessary to drive your child please park well out with the immediate school zone – remember we are lucky to have car parking available opposite the school. When parking always remember to Park Smartly (i.e. not on double yellow lines or white zig zag markings; this affects visibility for pupils crossing at the zebra)! Also, do not enter our staff car park unless you are a blue badge holder. Please also see our 5 min. walking zone map for top tips!
If everyone that usually drives to/from school tries a little to ease the congestion this will make a significant difference to the safety and well being of our pupil’s.
Please pass on this message to everyone who will be part of your child’s journey to/from school i.e. child-minders or grandparents.
We thank you for your support.
