Burnley principal fears child will die from ‘unsafe’ driving and parking in front of school


A headmaster issued a stern warning to parents over ‘dangerous’ driving and parking outside a Lancashire school – saying she feared a child could be killed.

It comes after a child was “nearly run over” outside St Peter’s CE Primary School in Burnley this afternoon.

Church Street school staff are increasingly concerned about the safety of students at the start and end of each school day due to the parking of “dangerous” or “dangerous driving” drivers.

Principal Claire Crowther has written to parents and caregivers about this.

She said: “Dear parents and caregivers, once again may I remind you to park safely at the start and end of the day. A child almost got knocked over after school this evening!

“It happens too often! I don’t want to have to send an email to explain that a child has been seriously injured, or worse, died due to adults parking dangerously or driving dangerously.

“There is the parking lot outside Shimla Spice or Sainsburys, where you can park and walk across to get to the school. NOBODY should drive on Rawcliffe Street or stop in front of the school on Church Street.

“Everyone should play their part to keep children safe. When walking, keep your children with you and walk safely on Rawcliffe Street, as children are easier to see when they are with an adult. Sincerely, Mrs. Crowther “
