Road Safety

At River Bank Primary School, the safety of our children, parents and staff is paramount. This includes as they make their way to and from school. Our newsletters regularly ask that parents follow the road safety laws and also support us by not parking on the double yellow lines, on corners or on the no parking/dropping off zig zags as well as not doing 3 points turns at drop off and collection times.  Instead, if driving we encourage the use of Wardown Park car park where parking is free and it is then a very short walk to school.  Otherwise, walk, bike or scoot to school instead.

 

          

A reminder for our parents:

Child car seats: the law  https://www.gov.uk/child-car-seats-the-rules
Using a child car seat or booster seat
Children must normally use a child car seat until they’re 12 years old or 135 centimetres tall, whichever comes first.
Children over 12 or more than 135cm tall must wear a seat belt.
You can choose a child car seat based on your child’s height or weight.
