Safety on and around schools

Schools liaise with different agencies to help create a safer environment around their school.

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

  • teaching students about the local road safety conditions contributes significantly to improving their own safety.
  • reminding parents and carers about safe 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.

These agencies include:

  • local councils
  • NSW Police
  • bus operators
  • Roads and Maritime Services.
