Our parents will have read in the recent newsletter about the county consultation on the removal of the School Crossing Patrol service at lunchtime. We have concerns about this as the impact could go beyond lunchtime. If the role is changed there will be a reduction to the wage and this may, in turn, make the post less attractive for someone looking for employment. I would like to encourage parents to respond to the consultation by going to www.durham.gov.uk/consultation and expressing your views. All responses need to be made by 7th November.
