Operation Safe Home was developed to help improve the system of children exiting the school at home time. Due to an increase in students attending the school and a rise in the number of road safety incidents occurring at this time an action plan was put into place .We currently have 497 pupils and expect to have over 500 pupils next Sept. The boy’s school is located within 300 metres of the girl’s school and has similar numbers. There is therefore a very high volume of traffic particularly in the evenings. The entrance to our school and the footpath are both very narrow.
