Pupils learned about parking safely outside their school in a talk from police.

Children from Kenilworth Primary School in Kenilworth Drive, discussed road safety and safe and legal parking with a member of the Borehamwood Police team in an assembly on Tuesday morning.

The talk to pupils, aged between three and eleven, was delivered by PCSO Marie Harvey of Borehamwood and Elstree Safer Neighbourhood Team.

PCSO Harvey said: “We want pupils to think about their own safety, encourage their parents to allow more time to get to school and think about other young people that may not be aware of the potential dangers on our roads. The pupils were interested in the penalties and quickly identified cars parked on yellow lines and zig zags.”

Eye-catching banners, funded by the Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership, were put up outside the school after the assembly educating pupils on the rules of the road.

Woodland Primary School, Alban Crescent, are to receive the talk from PCSO Karen Marchant today.

She added: “The frustration is that it is parents who are parking dangerously and inconsiderately. We hope pupils will tell their parents or carers not to park dangerously or illegally and highlight the consequences of their actions.”
