‘ParkSmart’ Campaign

St Mary’s are currently taking part in an initiative called ‘ParkSmart’ which is a campaign aimed at stopping dangerous parking and dropping-off near the school.

At school starting and ending times, the roads outside the school are being made very dangerous for pupils and adults.

The Junior Road Safety Officers (Primary 7 pupils) and the Parent Council are concerned and are taking measures to cut this out. The JRSOs have taken surveys in the classes asking pupils how they come to, and go home, from school. They have also conducted a survey outside the school to measure traffic levels.

Your child has been given a sheet asking you to pledge that you will, where possible, travel to and from school using a means other than car.

We thank you for your efforts in making our school approaches safer for pedestrians.

Please follow the links below for more information about this Edinburgh-wide campaign.
