Queens Park School - Safer Streets - Road Closure Order
Dangerous driving and parking outside the school has become an increasing issue. With rising stress levels and flaring tempers, we have seen staff being abused when trying to manage the situation and – most scarily of all – the lives of our children being put at risk.
This can’t continue.
In September Brighton and Hove council has introduced a successful road closure scheme across 14 schools, including neighbouring St Luke’s School, in which roads adjacent to the school entrance are closed during drop off and pick up times.
Without exception, all schools report increased safety and a positive impact of the programme. Queen’s Park School was recently informed that there is not enough funding available to extend the scheme to our school.
Why is the safety of our children less important?
We have teamed up with our local Councillor Nick Childs to help improve the situation for our school.
Please sign and share our petition to help us bring the scheme
to our school!
