The Met's Latest Recruits

Please enter an introduction for your news story here.

Our pupils were recruited by the Met Police to raise awareness of road safety on Coombe Lane West. They used hand held speed traps to catch speeding motorists, who were then offered the choice of receiving safety advice from the children, or facing a fine! Our children were adept at catching those over the speed limit, and were very good at persuading drivers to slow down in future!

It was all part of our on-going campaign to improve road safety. We are one of the only school sites in the Borough to still have a 30mph speed limit. We are campaigning for this to be reduced to 20mph. Our children have written letters to the local councillors, TfL, the Mayor of London and Sarah Olney, MP. They pointed out the safety and environmental advantages of lowering the speed limit. Watch this space for updates!
