School crossing patrols

Helping you to cross safely

School crossing patrols make sure that pedestrians cross the road safely during the school day.

If you live near a busy road or school, you can request a school crossing patrol by emailing: schoolcrossingpatrols@royalgreenwich.gov.uk.

We'll assess the area, during the morning and afternoon, to monitor vehicle flow and pedestrian movement. If the traffic flow reaches a certain level, we'll recruit a crossing patrol.

If you'd like to become a lollipop person, current vacancies appear on the Royal Borough of Greenwich Careers website.

Does your school have a school travel plan?

A school travel plan encourages safer walking, cycling and use of public transport on journeys to and from school.
