Drive safe, park safe, keep us safe!

The message in this road safety awareness poster is loud and clear but unfortunately, not all motorists follow the rules of the road designed to keep us all safe.  The Year 6 children are aware that the 20mph shown on their posters may not fall in line with the actual speed limits in the roads around our school, nevertheless they convey a clear message.

I have this week been contacted by a number of local residents, once again concerned about parking around our school.  I understand that grass verges have been churned up along Tadworth Street and also that some parents  have been stopping on the zigzags at pick up time at the back of the school.

I talked at some length to one resident, regarding what we cover with the children in school in relation to road safety.  They commented, ‘How hard must it be for primary aged children who are taught in school where drivers should and shouldn’t park, to then come out of school, and get into a car which has been illegally or irresponsibly parked by a parent who has chosen to totally disregard the rules that are there to keep everyone safe.’  I share their concerns and would ask that all parents think before they park.

As a school, we are committed to working with parents to hopefully ensure that children at Tadworth go on to be responsible citizens of the future.

Year 6 also made a brief road safety video which promotes key messages from their learning.  It can be found on the Tadworth Primary School website in the Links/Videos section.
