Make our hazardous journey to St Peter's C of E Primary, Heysham safe with a crossing, LCC

Taking your children to school shouldn't be dangerous, but the congested roads around St. Peter's C of E School in Heysham make crossing the road just that.
Cars are mounting pavements whilst parking, parking over driveways, driving erratically and far too quickly for a road and pavement full of small children and prams. As well as the number 4 stagecoach bus trying to pass on the narrow road at drop off and pick up.
We want Lancashire County Council to begin a consultation to review the traffic conditions around our school, ideally adding a safe crossing point along School Road with a lollipop person to ensure our children get to school safely.
Here are some comments from concerned parents:
"...my husband and our 2 year old son were nearly hit whilst walking on the pavement from school drop off when a car was trying to to do a 3 point turn which nearly mounted the kerb on School Road"
“...we were nearly hit by a car driving too quickly & driving onto the pavement last week... it was a parent or someone doing the school run.”
“The bus worries me every time it comes down there. I’m thinking a zebra crossing would be good, then at least there’ll be one point of crossing instead of the whole length of road.”
“that road is a tragic accident waiting to happen."
"My son has hearing difficulties and crossing the road is a nightmare. I've had to drag him back from the road several times to avoid cars"
“That junction is a fatality waiting to happen , the council won't do anything until something horrible happens.”
“If there was a safe crossing towards the old hall people might be inclined to use the road further down/old Hall”
We thank you for your time in reading this and look forward to hearing your response.
From the parents/ grandparents / carers of the pupils of St Peter’s, Heysham.
