EDM #1960
Tabled 09 January 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House commends Falkland Primary School, Fife, on pioneering an initiative to raise awareness of the need for motorists to exercise caution when driving near the school; congratulates pupils and staff on the initiative, which includes forming a travel action group comprising parents and junior road safety officers and creating a road safety banner designed by pupils to highlight concerns to the community and visitors; recognises the efforts involved in overcoming significant difficulties of developing a school travel plan given the historic nature of the village, lack of parking and school location next to the main road; and hopes that the school, in partnership with Fife Council and Police Scotland, will succeed in creating a safer environment for all.
