Bring back our school crossing patrol!

Mr Knight’s and Mrs Turner’s English classes are busy researching the reasons behind the decision to take away our lollipop lady on Corchester Walk. The children will be writing to Newcastle City Council about this issue next week and would like to hear the views of other people affected by this. These views will form part of the letters they write to persuade the council to bring back our crossing patrol.

What are your opinions on the decision to end the crossing patrol, and your reasons for them? Do you have any suggestions as to how the safety of pedestrians (particularly the children) could be improved? Do you have anything else you wish to add?
