Safety on and around schools

Schools aim to address road safety issues around their school to create a safer environment for the whole school community by:

  • reminding parents and carers about safe road user behaviours outside the school also contributes significantly to the safety of our students.
  • working with agencies to improve local safety issues in the school zone through planning, enforcement, engineering or environmental changes.
