Temple Hill Primary Academy started this petition to kent county council

Many parents have reported issues to Temple Hill Primary Academy regarding the safety of walking along pavements along St Edmunds Road in the mornings and afternoons. The main issue is that as St Edmunds Road is only wide enough for one vehicle as one side of the road is always taken up with parked cars. Should any vehicles meet along the road, the only way for them to pass one another is to mount the pavement. This is dangerous, especially during peak school drop off/pickup times as our parents/carers and their children make the pavements busy.

The school would like to explore the option of having a drop off zone put in to alleviate traffic in the mornings and allow vehicles dropping off children to do so in a safe place away from the main road. The school would commit to staffing the drop off at all operational hours. We have seen success with a drop off zone at our fellow Galaxy Trust school, Oakfield Primary Academy and we would like to explore the feasibility of implementing a similar system at Temple Hill Primary Academy.

A rough diagram of the current and proposed layout can be view by clicking here.

By signing this petition, you will help in our goal of making the school and the surrounding area a safer place for our children. 

If you have any queries, please contact the school.
