24 November 2017 Whole School Road Safety:  Dear Parents, This morning some particularly dangerous driving was witnessed on our zebra crossing  but thankfully no-one was hurt. It appears that the drivers may have been parents of children at the school. Please can I ask you to be vigilant when crossing the road and remind your children to do likewise. Also, if you are a driver, please reduce your speed when approaching the crossing so any dangerous drivers behind you are forced to slow down as well. Many thanks
Miss Hawkes
