For young people attending specialist and mainstream education on and around the Fromefield road B3090, crossing the road is proving increasingly difficult.

This petition has been initiated by the young people of Priory Education Services, North Hill House School who engage in routine weekly social integration initiatives within the local community and feel unsafe crossing the Fromefield road B3090. 

We, the undersigned expect public services in our local community that genuinely meet peoples’ needs. As part of our social, academic and physical development of independence skills we call upon the local authority to affect positive change to enable us to independently and safely cross the Fromefield road, B3090 (outside Farleigh Further Education College) via the instillation of a safe crossing zone. 

Walking from North Hill House School (Priory education Services) into town poses barriers to the promotion of independence and the teaching of associated skills. The road is routinely busy and does not offer adequate safe opportunities to grade exposure to independence. Young people enrolled at North Hill House School habitually require an adult to help cross the Fromefield road irrespective of their levels of social independence which in turn is debilitating; often resulting in feelings of “embarrassment” and physical withdrawal from social independence tasks in the community altogether.

North Hill House School prides itself on facilitating active integration and inclusion of our young people within the local community. A safe, designated area in which to cross the Fromefild road B3090 would further enable this initiative to be realised. Moreover, directly improve safety and accessibility of independence milestones.
