Better known as a Lollipop man or lady, Wardens can stop traffic to help anyone cross the road, not only children.

The role of a School Crossing Patrol Warden

The Council provide these patrols as part of its efforts to improve road safety.

Wardens are on duty twice each day, this is usually for :

  • 30 minutes before the start of the school day
  • 30 minutes after the end of the school day

Wardens receive:

  • training to a high standard
  • regular visits from their supervisors

This ensures safety standards are being maintained.

Sites without School Crossing Patrols

If a warden can't attend a site, or one becomes vacant, the Council has a team of reserve wardens to provide cover.

Sometimes we can’t provide cover, for example:

  • at short notice
  • if the regular warden will be absent for some time.

In these events, we will inform any local schools as soon as possible.
