School Crossing Patrol Information

Dear Parent


The purpose of providing School Keep Clear markings is to keep the space outside of schools free from parked vehicles so that children can be seen more easily when crossing the road.

School 'keep clear' markings. These are shown as yellow zigzag markings directly outside a school. No vehicles should park on the zigzag or even stop to set down passengers whilst the restrictions are in force.

There are School Keep Clear markings present outside schools within the Rochdale Borough. These markings are enforceable, meaning motorists observed parking or dropping off passengers can be issued with a fine by either an enforcement officer who is patrolling the area or by the camera enforcement vehicle.


Keep entrance clear of stationary vehicles, even if picking up or setting down children




Can you please not stop on the keep clear markings outside your child’s school and keep all school children safe when crossing the road.
