I have long campaigned for increased safety outside of our local schools. So I was so pleased to hear that following meetings that myself and Councillor Vijay Singh Riyait have held with the school and officers from the council, additional work is now being carried out near Belgrave St Peter’s Primary school to ensure young people can travel to and from school safely.

Plans have been agreed for a child bollard to be installed near the Red Hill roundabout and also on Abbey Lane. There will also be further pencil bollards installed on the corner of Thurcaston Road.

The school are also looking for a School Crossing Patrol Officer so if you know of anyone who may be interested, you can find more details here.

Concerns have been raised with me again over the safety of children walking to and from Belgrave St Peter’s Primary School. As the school is located near the busy A6, drivers aren’t always aware that there is even a school there!

Many children must cross the busy road to get to school so myself and local councillor, Vijay Riyait, have recently met with the headteacher, school governors and officers from the City Council to see what can be done to make the walk to school safer for them.

We discussed installing additional signage so motorists know to slow down, ensuring we have school crossing patrols to help children cross safely and putting in more pencil bollards near the school gates. Ensuring our children are safe when walking to and from school is really important to me, so I will continue to work with the Council and the school to ensure children can get to school safely.
