Together we nurture the genius in everyone
A group of parents, concerned about pollution and safety outside the school gates, are applying to make Alexandra Road and Princes Road a school street area. This means that only cyclists and pedestrians can use the roads during drop off and pick up times. The roads will be closed to non-residential vehicles, for just 30 minutes during these specified times, resulting in a reduction in the toxic air that cars create. It will also stop issues of congestion, speeding and other forms of dangerous driving outside our schools.
Dangers of car pollution has been proven to be directly to blame for lung problems such as asthma, lung disease, cancer, heart disease and strokes. By signing the petition, your child’s and your own health and safety will be positively impacted.
The exciting news is the council is interested in considering this scheme but suggested we get support of both schools and parents. Both schools support this idea in principle, and we have the backing of the governors.
Just click on the link and sign the petition so we can start improving the air quality within our community.
