New signs to encourage road safety

By timesecholife on in All News, Featured News

Pupils at a primary school in Cheadle have been joined by a few new artificial school-mates to help to spread the message of safe parking outside their gates. Bishop Rawle CE Primary, which is part of The Moorlands Primary Federation (a Multi-Academy Trust of five local primary schools), recently welcomed five new members to school, in the form of signs featuring two children, a giraffe, a lion and an elephant.

Pupils at a primary school in Cheadle have been joined by a few new artificial school-mates to help to spread the message of safe parking outside their gates.

Bishop Rawle CE Primary, which is part of The Moorlands Primary Federation (a Multi-Academy Trust of five local primary schools), recently welcomed five new members to school, in the form of signs featuring two children, a giraffe, a lion and an elephant.

The signs are all made out of weatherproof materials so they can stand on the pavement in rain or shine, to remind road users of the importance of parking responsibly.

Children in the School Council chose the new signs as part of their commitment to keep everyone in the school family and wider community safe at the start and end of the day.

Pupil, Ella, aged six, said: “I chose the elephant because they are my favourite. I think the signs are a great idea, they will help remind us all where to park safely.”

Nine-year-old Joe said: “I like the signs because they are bright, and you can see them from a long way away and I also hope that they will stop people parking on the pavement and keep everyone safe.”

Speaking of the initiative, School Leader Averil Kirk, said: “They are a wonderful asset to our school as they help to keep all of our school community and Parishioners safe and even bring a few smiles at the same time.”

Executive Principal of The Moorlands Primary Federation (TMPF), Jared Eccles, added:“It is a great way for the children to share their hopes for everyone to park safely around our lovely school.

We all want to look after one another and hope that these will go some way to continuing to do so.”

Parents at Bishop Rawle School, and two other Cheadle schools, are calling for free parking to be extended in Cheadle town centre to help combat the parking issue outside the schools.
