Save St. Saviour's Primary School Lollipop Man

This petition had 418 supporters

On Monday 20th June, Staffordshire County Council issued a letter to community leaders to state that the School Crossing Patrol on the A34 Congleton Road, Butt Lane (outside St. Saviours School) will be scrapped by September 2016.  The letter also states that sites across the county have been assessed and categorised and the A34 Congleton Road has been deemed as a low priority due to a traffic signal controlled crossing point already in place.  The school may be asked to find £3,500 if the service is to continue.  

We call upon Staffordshire County Council to reverse their decision to scrap our local lollipop man and continue to fund the service. The Council has a duty to keep our children safe.  The A34 Congleton Road is considered a dangerous road by local people and it is completely unacceptable to deem the road low priority. There have been many car accidents and deaths on this particular stretch of road and the crossing is also sited between a very dangerous junction.  We also call on the Council to re-categorise our crossing as a high priority area.  

Our local schools should be spending their ever shrinking budgets on children's education, not be forced to foot the bill for highways services, which are the responsibility of Staffordshire County Council.
