Road Safety

On Wednesday 20th March our School Councillors and our Junior Road Safety Officers joined Owen, our Community Policeman for a walk near our school.

Church Lane is a narrow road with no parking for residents in the area.  Cars are parked along the road and this can be dangerous for children coming to and leaving school.  There is a bend by the school making it difficult for oncoming cars to be seen and for cars coming into Church Lane to notice any children. 

The aim was to look at the signs around the school and how they can be improved so that motorists are aware of children in the immediate area.   In addition, the yellow lines around the school are due to be repainted.  They walked up to Knapps Hard and back down to the A32.  A  meeting is due with Chris Waller, Chairman of West Meon Parish Council to discuss any further ideas.
