School Crossing Patrol Survey 

Our school crossing guides continue to deliver an excellent and highly valued service to communities across Edinburgh and we want to make sure this continues.

We are reviewing the current service to make sure we are providing the best possible service and that we have crossing guides where and when we most need them.  We have already studied our existing patrol sites; how many people use them, traffic levels and where they are located.

We are now getting feedback from school crossing patrol guides, people using the service and groups including Parent Councils, Head Teachers, Junior Road Safety Officers and Councillors. Community Councils / Neighbourhood Partnership have also been asked to contribute.We also wish to get the views of Parents and Carers, who may contribute to the Review through the Council’s Consultation Hub, by a specific questionnaire which can be found using this link –

The link is open for contributions and will close on Tuesday 24 April 2018.

RESPONSIBLE PARKING –  A MESSAGE FROM MRS PEARSTON

Can I please remind families, for the safety of our children, to park responsibly when dropping off/picking up children from school?  There should not be any parking on the double yellow lines, zig zags, the school drive or anywhere within the school gates.I will periodically be getting out and about at drop off and pick up times with our newly-appointed Junior Road Safety Officers (Sam Melville and Derren Walker in P7) to monitor the situation. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this.

Exciting News – Longstone Pupils help change the law.

Last year the P6’smade a video and sent it to the Scottish Parliament.  It was made to let politicians know how children feel about the current law that allows parents to smack their children. The pupils used art work and song to express their opinions and were praised for the work they had done.  Recently the Scottish parliament decided that they are going to change the law about hitting children.
