Parents dropping off children at a north Norfolk primary school will get a stark warning not to park dangerously.

The poster at Sheringham Primary School has been put up in a bid to improve safety and prevent people from parking on the zig-zag lines in front of the school, especially between 3pm and 3.30pm.

It was developed by PC Ian Smith and PCSO Rebekah Simms, from Sheringham Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT), the Friends of Sheringham Primary School and Graphic Edge designers in Sheringham.

The poster shows children lying along the yellow zig-zag lines, which are outside the school, at the cul-de-sac end of Cooper Road.

Tim Groves, senior teacher at Sheringham primary, said: “We have so many cars coming down here at the end of the day and sooner or later children and cars could collide.”

The school is the county’s largest primary and has more than 600 pupils.

PC Smith said: “This is a community problem and it is the community that is going to solve it.”

He added the school children have “embraced” the idea.

It is believed Sheringham primary is the first school in Norfolk to give out this kind of safety message. Any school interested in taking it up should ring Sheringham SNT on 101.

  • Issue the offending drivers with a "Section 59". Keep a police presence outside the school. That should make the drivers think twice..
