Pupils were visited by police officers today to learn about road safety around their school.

Members of the Hertsmere Safer Neighbourhood Teams visited pupils from Summerswood Primary School, in Furzehill Road, Borehamwood.

The visit is part of an initiative to get children to help educate their parents about the hazards of careless parking near schools.

Pauline Norman, who is involved in road safety for the school, said: “I think not just our school but a lot of schools in Hertsmere have similar parking issues.

“The point of this programme is to educate the children about road safety so they pass it on to their parents and the whole school community.

“This is just a part of the ongoing work we do with the children to promote road safety and safe school journeys.”

A banner funded by Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership, which reads ‘parking illegally could cost a child’s life, stay off yellow lines, zig zags and pavements’, has been put up outside the school.

Other schools are taking part in the scheme including Shenley Primary School, in London Road, Shenley, which put up a similar banner last month.
