School starts petition against lollipop patrol cuts

Parents at a Quarry Bank primary are urging schools across the borough to sign a petition to block Dudley Council’s plans to axe lollipop patrols.

The council is currently proposing to cut the crossing patrol costs from its budget by charging schools for the service.

However, school bosses believe their financial plans, which are already looking “increasingly difficult” will not be able to stretch to providing the crossing funds.

The proposed cuts has led the headteacher and governors from Thorns Primary School, in Quarry Bank, to create a borough-wide petition, asking Dudley Council to make savings elsewhere.
